Chelsea is said to have lost the race to hire Alex Telles, the talented Brazilian left-back, to Paris Saint- Germain.
The former Galatasaray man scored eight goals and five assists in the 2019-20 Liga. Telles, whose current deal in Portugal will come to an end in the summer of 2021, has already garnered considerable interest from a number of top clubs, including Chelsea. The 27-year-old along with another player, Juventus, can be safely credited for Chelsea being persistently linked to Brazil in recent weeks.
However, according to the Brazilian outlet GaúchaZH, that the champions of the Ligue 1 are close to agreeing on a deal for Telles. The versatile defender seems to be set to join the PSG, with Brazil’s international likely to cost between €20 m (£17.5 m) and €25 m (£21.8 m).
