Real Madrid are hoping to beat Chelsea to the signature of Galatasaray left-back Alex Telles, according to the Metro.
However, the Stamford Bridge outfit’s former boss Rafa Benitez has also made it a priority to sign the 22-year-old. The Metro report that the defender will act as cover for Marcelo with current understudy Fabio Coentrao being linked with a move to AC Milan.
The deal would be the latest in what seems to be a slight change to Los Blancos’ transfer policy. Rather than go after players that have established themselves at the biggest clubs across Europe, and thus could be classed as ‘Galacticos’, they have added players to their squad that are unproven at the very highest level, but promise an incredible amount of potential.
