Sharing Is Caring

Alex Telles is the first outfield first-team squad player to leave Man United this summer since the five players whose contracts expired at the end of June.

Manchester United left-back Alex Telles has joined Sevilla on a season-long loan.

United sources have confirmed Sevilla are covering Telles’s wages in full and there is no obligation to buy.

Telles, 29, is the second first-team squad member to leave on a season-long loan after Dean Henderson moved to Nottingham Forest. The promoted Premier League side are also covering the goalkeeper’s full wages.

United signed Telles from Porto for €15million rising to €20m on deadline day in October 2020 and the Brazilian started 22 times last season. Sevilla signed Anthony Martial on loan from United in January.

The arrival of fellow left-back Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord effectively signalled the end of Telles’s United career and he played as an auxiliary centre-back and midfielder during the pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia.

Telles started at left-back against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday but that friendly was arranged for United’s second string after the first XI played against Atletico Madrid in Oslo on Saturday.
