Galatasaray want £10m for Chelsea target

Alex Telles

Galatasaray want £10 million for Chelsea target Alex Telles according to Eurosport Turkey.

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

Galatasaray manager Hamza Hamzaoğlu revealed that the club has not received an offer that matches their valuation of Telles.

Hamzaoğlu was quoted as saying: “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.”

The Blues have been on the look-out for a new left-back following Felipe Luis’ return to Atletico Madrid earlier this summer but did recently complete the signing of Baba Rahman.

Chelsea confirmed the transfer on their official website but are yet to disclose the financial details of the transfer.

Telles joined Galatasaray on a €6 million transfer from Gremio last January and still has another three-years left on his current deal.

The 22-year-old provided a total of two goals and three assists in 56 games for the Lions last season.
