Galatasaray manager Hamza Hamzaoglu has stated that the Istanbul Giant’s have rejected bids for their Brazilian left back Alex Telles.
Speaking to NTV Spor Hamzaoglu said, “We have not received a bid which matches our valuation for Alex [Telles].
“Therefore we have not allowed him to leave. If a bid comes in close to our valuation we will consider selling him.”
Sky Italia reporter Gianluca Di Marzio has stated that Telles is nearing a move to Chelsea.
The 22-year-old joined Galatasaray on a €6 million transfer from Gremio last January and still has another three-years left on his current deal.
The Brazilian fullback was part of the Galatasaray side that won the league title for a record 20th time last season. The Lions also won the double and earned the right to wear a fourth star on their shirt next season.
Telles provided a total of two goals and three assists in 56 games for the Lions last season.
