Galatasaray manager confirms bid for Chelsea target

Galatasaray manager Hamza Hamzaoğlu has confirmed that the Istanbul based club have received offerers from the Brazilian left-back

“I do not want any of my players to leave. We have received offers for Telles. I hope to continue with the squad I have,” Hamzaoglu was quoted as saying by Fanatik.

The statement comes amid reports linking Telles with a €8 million move to the Ligue 1 Champions PSG according to LigTV.

The Daily Star previously reported that the Lions turned down a £5 million offer from Chelsea for the Brazilian full-back. Real Madrid were also in the race to sign Telles according to AS.

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.

Telles played the full 90 minutes in Galatasaray’s 2-1 defeat at the hands of Osmanlispor on Monday.
