Alex Teixeira NOT leaving Shakhtar Donetsk


Chelsea dealt massive transfer blow

Shakhtar Donetsk manager Mircea Lucescu has dealt Chelsea a major transfer blow by confirming that Alex Teixeira won’t be leaving the club this window.

The Blues have been heavily linked with signing the Brazilian forward this transfer window, with some reports claiming a £30million transfer fee had been agreed and a contract had been offered to the player.

However, Lucescu has rubbished those reports and has also confirmed that the club have no intentions of selling the striker this month as they believe he can develop further from now until the summer.

Despite Shakhtar admitted that they wouldn’t stand in Teixeira‘s way should he choose to leave the club, the manager has confirmed that he could be worth even more in the summer, and that’s why he’s likely to stay in Ukraine past this transfer window.

Teixeira Staying Put

“He needs to play more with us to develop further, although his level is already very high,” he said.

“But if he sticks around, the offers in June could be higher.

“At the moment we have not received any offer and of course, in the future if we receive one which satisfies the club, then we will consider it.”
