Galatasaray complete €6.1 million signing of Grêmio defender Alex Telles
Galatasaray have finally completed the signing of Grêmio defender Alex Telles.
The Spor Toto Süper Lig side will pay €6.1 million across five years for the 21 year-old, who was voted in the team of the season for the 2013 Brasileirão.
Galatasaray had hoped to sign Telles earlier this month, but complications over a transfer fee delayed the deal from being completed.
Telles scored one goal in 36 appearances as Grêmio finished second in the Brasileirão last term.
The Caxias do Sul-native is seen as a solution to the problems Galatasaray Head Coach Roberto Mancini has had at left full-back this season.
