Reliable journalist: Rangers star offered 10x reported salary to complete late move
Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos could be offered as much as £75,000 per week to move to Chinese Super League side Beijing Renhe, according to a report.
Daily Express journalist Bruce Archer has claimed the Chinese side could increase Morelos wage to 11 times what he is currently earning at Ibrox.
The Gers want to keep hold of their prized asset until the end of the season at least before cashing in on the 21-year-old Colombian.
“Beijing Renhe ready to pay Alfredo Morelos £75k-a-week but Rangers fighting to keep him,” Archer said on his personal Twitter account.

Morelos has been a revelation at Ibrox since arriving from HJK Helsinki over the summer and has hit the net 13 times in 27 appearances for the Light Blues.
The 21-year-old is the top goalscorer in the Scottish Premiership so far this season and has quickly won over Rangers fans with his goal-scoring exploits and hard-working performances.
Morelos currently has two-and-a-half years left on his Rangers contract and Gers fans will be desperate to see the Colombian remain at Ibrox.
The Sun claim that the player is currently on just £7,000 a week.
Football Insider verdict:
£75,000 per week is a ridiculous amount of money for someone currently earning a reported £7,000 per week. The Colombian has been arguably Rangers’ most important player this season and letting him go without a replacement would be madness from the Gers. As more and more details emerge it looks more likely the striker could be off if the Gers can get someone in – even on a short-term deal – to replace the 21-year-old. If the Gers can keep hold of Morelos, they could be looking at a massive windfall come the summer for El Bufalo.
