Chelsea target Alex Telles completes move to Inter

Alex Telles has completed his loan move from Galatasaray to Inter Milan. The Serie A giants have agreed a €1.5 million fee for the season long loan with the Istanbul Giants.

Inter have also agreed a €8.5 million option to buy Telles at the end of the season.

The Serie A giants confirmed the news on their official website. Nerazzurri president welcomed the club’s new signings with the following message, “Telles will add quality and youth to our side. He’s a young, pacy full-back – a good fit for our squad – and he’ll be able to lend us a big hand with his offensive and defensive ability.”

The Brazilian left-back has been closely linked with Chelsea and PSG over the summer.

The Daily Star reported that the Lions turned down a £5 million offer from Chelsea for the Brazilian full-back.

Telles provided a total of two goals and three assists in 56 games for the Lions over the 2014-15 campaign and already has an assist this season.

The Brazilian joined the Lions on a £4.3 million move from Gremio in 2013 and still has another three-years left on his contract with the Istanbul giants.
