Manchester United Football Club have already undergone a pretty big overhaul already under Erik ten Hag – with several players leaving on free transfers and others being moved on.
If anything, the squad looks a little thin in some areas of the field. However, left-back isn’t one of them. After the arrival of Tyrell Malacia, it always felt like one left-sided defender would have to be sold on. That man? Alex Telles.
The Brazilian has never really nailed down a starting spot at Old Trafford, and he is set for a new opportunity in Spain. Manchester United left-back Alex Telles is close to signing for Sevilla on a season-long loan.
Alex Telles has been pictured in Spain ahead of his imminent move to Spanish side Sevilla. Fabrizio Romano reports Telles will undergo a medical with the La Liga club today before his move is completed.
There is no option to buy as part of the agreement. Telles will return to Old Trafford next summer, when he will have one year left on his contract, which expires in 2024. It’s unlikely United would exercise a clause to extend to 2025.
Telles would become the third player to leave Manchester United on loan, following Dean Henderson’s move to Nottingham Forest and Alvaro Fernandez’s switch to Preston North End.
