Alex Telles has scored 26 goals and made 50 assists in 5 seasons for Porto.
He is a player on set pieces too. He normally takes corners and some penalties too which has contributed in those numbers. Consequently i have seen many fans saying two things:
1. Portuguese League and the Premier League are different.
2. He won't be getting numbers here because he won't be taking set pieces.
Number 1: If this is the case, no Premier League clubs should be buying from other leagues. We need to stop with that nonsense. De Bruyne today, Hazard, Salah etc were all players bought from other leagues.
Have they not done well in the Premier League? Different league or not, if the player is good enough he will strive anyway.
Number 2: Telles is not all about set pieces. He has dynamite in his left footý. The crosses he sends in have excellent swerve and precision.
He is also never shy to rake a shot and they are often very powerful and precise. Overall, he is not a player who relies on set pieces to cross or to shoot.
Take that off your mind. He has real quality in his left foot and i have very little doubts on him replicating in the Premier League what he has been doing with Porto.
Am very sure he will be unstoppable in premier league.
United fans what do you think.
