Manchester City have reportedly joined Chelsea in chase for Porto left-back Alex Telles, according to report from Le10Sport.
Both Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with the Brazil international, but they will face competition from Pep Guardiola’s side for the left-back.
With a devastating left foot and an eye for that perfect set-piece, Alex Telles can offer defensive stability that the Blues from Manchester have struggled with Benjamin Mendy and Oleksandr Zinchenko in recent times.
