Reports today suggest that Alex Telles’ loan deal to Sevilla has been agreed with the left-back just needing to complete a medical. There is no option to buy in the proposed loan move. The 29-year-old signed from Porto for £15m two seasons ago and has made 50 first team appearances since then.
While Telles appears capable from dead ball situations, and can whip in a decent cross, he’s been found lacking defensively and isn’t part of Erik ten Hag’s plans.
The signing of Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord meant Telles’ days were numbered, with Luke Shaw further competition for the left-back position.
Telles will be hoping to have more success in Spain that United teammates Anthony Martial who endured a dreadful loan spell in Sevilla for the second half of last season.
Speaking a few months ago with the club’s official site, Telles spoke about his passion for the game. La Liga fans will be hoping to see this spirit in him next season.
Everything I’ve achieved is through love and passion. I know how difficult it’s been to get to where I am today, at a club like Manchester United, every kick of the ball is a unique moment for me, that’s how I see it.
The way I live and fight, the way I chase goals in my life is evident on the pitch. I don’t think there’s a difference [between how I play and live]. Every player has their own characteristics in life and on the pitch. Playing with passion and doing my best to the very end are mine.
