Alex Telles career history until 2020
This FM 2014 player profile of Alex Telles shows a real bargain, a solid young left back. If you manage an English club you will be pleased to find out that he should be granted a work permit (upon appeal) right at the start of the game. He’s not cheap any more though as Galatasaray bought him in January so if you start a game with the latest patch you would have to pay 25 million for him.
In my test save he moved from Gremio to Sao Paulo before making the switch to Europe for a hefty 20.5 million fee, with Shakhtar Donetsk as the buyers. After five solid seasons in Ukraine he decided not to extend his contract and Barcelona decided to make the most out of the opportunity and signed him on a free transfer at the end of the 2019-2020 season. He even managed to get 20 caps for Brazil, not an easy national team to break into.
His 2020 profile shows a player with solid physical attributes, especially speed and stamina, good mentally as well, plus solid technical and defensive skills.
