Alex Telles confirms receiving Flamengo bid [divider]
Galatasaray left-back Alex Telles has confirmed receiving a bid from Brazilian giants Flamengo.
“Flamengo sporting director Felipe Ximenes met with my agent and told him they wanted me but Galatasaray did not want to let me go,” Telles told Globo Radio.
Telles was also closely linked with a number of Italian and Brazilian clubs during the winter transfer window.
The young fullback struggled for first team football under former manager Cesare Prandelli.
However, under current head coach Hamza Hamzaoğlu, Telles has become a first team regular. The 22-year-old has played 90 minutes in the Lions last seven Süper Lig matches.
Galatasaray have not lost a Süper Lig game in which Telles has played 90 minutes this season.
The Lions have won five and drawn two of the last seven league games in which Telles has started.
The 22-year-old has played 21 times in all competitions for Galatasaray this season.
Telles joined Galatasaray on a €6 million transfer from Gremio last January and has made a total of 42 appearances for the Lions.
