Reports suggest Alex Telles is close to Galatasaray move againTelles could be holding up a Galatasaray shirt soon
The problems between Galatasaray and Grêmio over the transfer of Alex Telles are close to be resolved according to Lance.
They report that Telles should be in Istanbul today and all that needs to happen is for Gala to fax over documents to seal the deal.
Telles’ agent Fernando Otto told Lance that the deal is nearly finalized.
“Grêmio is only waiting for a document, a fax but it is all right. We will travel to Turkey on Thursday.”
Only last week this transfer seemed virtually completed with just some final agreements needed but Grêmio then suspended the deal due to changes in the payments.
They insisted that these changes didn’t provide them the guarantees they wanted but now it seems finally Telles will move to Turkey. The fee is approximately €7 million, with 40% percent of that sum paid upfront whilst the rest will be in various installments according to Zerohora.
The left-back’s move to Gala will depend on the Turkish club selling two overseas players though as Turkish Football Federation rules restrict clubs to a maximum of 10 foreign players and currently Galatasaray has 11.
It is believed that this won’t be a problem though, with departures expected soon, and Telles will most likely complete his transfer over the next few days.
