Galatasaray have confirmed that they do not intend to bring back Alex Telles from his loan spell at Inter Milan.
The left back moved to the Italian club on a loan deal with a view of converting into a permanent move. The 23-year-old has shown sufficient promise for the Italian outfit by starting in 13 league matches, but it remains to be seen if this is sufficient for him to earn a permanent stay at the San Siro.
Roberto Mancini has so far been reluctant to talk about this aspect until the end of the campaign. Now, the Turkish club have categorically stated that if Inter do not want the player, then they would not think twice about selling him elsewhere.
Another Galatasaray player who is on loan elsewhere is Bruma. The player is with Spanish outfit Real Sociedad and they do not want him back. However, the situation is proving difficult since the Spanish outfit also have not shown a lot of interest in keeping him permanently. President Dursun Özbek says thatTelles does not figure in the plans of Galatasaray at the moment. The club have been in turmoil for the last couple of seasons and they recently witnessed a managerial change. Olde Riekerink has become the new manager of the club following a run of poor results.
“Currently they are playing on loan and will not return here. In our transfer strategy we have to think of their future too and wait for the situation to be clarified.If they do return, then we’ll transfer them somewhere else. We’ll think about it without rushing,” said the club president. Even after the arrival of the Dutchman, results are yet to improve. The club was recently banned from all forms of European football for two seasons due to poor financial results.
