The FC Porto said in a statement posted on its website that the termination clause of Telles’s contract is valued at $44.4 million, but gave no further financial details on the transfer.

However, Galatasaray said in a statement reported by Portuguese media that the deal cost the Dragons $7.2 million.

Telles has already worn Porto shirt and will join his new team’s training session later on Wednesday under the command of coach Nuno Espirito Santo.

The Brazilian defender, who started at Juventus, played for Brazil’s Gremio and joined Galatasaray in 2013, where he played for two seasons before moving on loan to Inter Milan last summer.
