Galatasaray left-back Alex Telles has revealed that his goal is to play for the Brazil national team.

“I did not expect to be where I am today at this early stage in my career,” Telles told ESPN.

“I have left the comforts of Brazil to join a new league in a totally new country for me. 

“I had planned to do this a year or two for now but I had the opportunity to prove myself earlier and went for it. 

“Now it is up to me to prove myself, I have to work hard and keep developing. 

“If I play well Carlos Dunga may notice me, I have to be good enough to prove myself to him, he is still picking his ideal team so I have a chance to make it into the new Brazil setup.”

Telles has yet to represent the Brazil national team.

The 21-year-old has made 14 appearances in all competitions for Galatasaray this season.
