Sevilla confirm transfer of Manchester United’s Alex Telles on a season-long loan

Sevilla confirm takeover of Manchester United outcast Alex Telles on season-long loan… with Spanish side to pay the Brazilian’s wages in full, but they have no option to buy him

  • Manchester United left back Alex Telles has been loaned to Sevilla for a season
  • Spanish outfit has no option to buy the Brazilian international at the end of the loan
  • The 29-year-old defender joined the Red Devils in October 2020 for £15.4 million
  • However, Telles played second fiddle to Luke Shaw, 27, in his debut campaign

Sevilla have confirmed they have signed Alex Telles from Manchester United for a season.

The LaLiga side has agreed to pay the Brazilian’s salary in full, but there will be no loan fee or purchase option.

Telles traveled to Spain on Wednesday evening for a medical before joining the Spanish team, as he was not part of new manager Erik ten Hag’s plans.

The Spanish side have also named its United team-mate Eric Bailly as a possible replacement for Jules Kunde, who left for Barcelona last week.

Telles, 29, is redundant under Ten Hag, who bought Tyrell Malacia to increase competition for Luke Shaw, while Lisandro Martinez can also cover that position.

Brazilian fullback Telles, who came to United for £15.8 million from Porto in 2020, made 26 appearances last season.

He played a part in pre-season friendlies and was among the goalscorers in last week’s behind-closed-door friendly win over Wrexham.

Sevilla have a good relationship with United and believe Telles can have a big impact on their squad.

Bailly has an offer from Fulham plus interest from Roma and AC Milan, but is on the three-man Sevilla shortlist and awaits a serious offer.

United are also poised to take a loan this week for Ethan Laird to join Watford.

However, Phil Jones is waiting for other options rather than pursuing a proposal to join Wayne Rooney at DC United.
