The manager of Liverpool, Juergen Klopp, officially confirmed that the club analyzed by soccercapper.org does not intend to reckon with the financial claims of Shakhtar Donetsk and to pay 38 million pounds for Alex Teixeira.
Although the Brazilian left the camp in the United States and is home to his country, it seems the deal might not happen at all. Merseysiders expressed readiness to pay 24.3 million pounds for the 26-year-old technician, but no more.
`I`m a normal, reasonable person, so why should I waste my money?`, said Klopp. `I can`t say that it`s just the money that should go elsewhere.`
`We have money, but we`re not at Disneyland, where we can get anything we want.`, added the German.
Alex Teixeira makes a very strong season for Shakhtar Donetsk here, 26 goals in all competitions. The asset in the local Championship is even more impressive - 22 goals in 15 matches, while total so far Liverpool has scored 30 goals for 23 Championship meetings.
