£30,000-per-week Rangers man reportedly could be the next player on his way out of Ibrox

According to Football Whispers, Rangers centre-back Bruno Alves is most likely the next player to leave Ibrox.

The likelihood of an exit for the 35-year-old Portugal international is rated a 2.3 out of 5, and despite a move to the Benevento falling through last month, the veteran defender could still be on the move with the Chinese Super League transfer window not closing until February 28.

According to Unione Sarda, Alves earned £58,000-a-week at Cagliari before arriving Rangers last summer, but he has since taken a huge cut, and The Celtic Blog claims he now pockets around £30,000 at the Glasgow club.

With only 17 appearances to his name since getting signed by erstwhile boss Pedro Caixinha, the injury-ravaged Portuguese hasn’t quite managed to be useful to the cause as Rangers would have imagined.

Alves is clearly now surplus to requirements, and cutting losses with him can no doubt ease a lot of financial pressure on cash-strapped Gers.

Should a move not happen this month, it could deal a huge blow on his international ambitions as he looks to play one last World Cup for Portugal.
