Manchester United full-back Alex Telles is on the brink of signing for Sevilla on loan, according to reports in Brazil.

The 29-year-old defender has arrived at Old Trafford in a £15.4 million deal from Portuguese giants, Porto back in 2020 but has been unable to secure a regular first-team football as he was only used as a back-up to Luke Shaw.

Erik ten Hag also gave the Red Devils the green light to sign Tyrell Malacia from Eredivisie giants Feyenoord last month, which has provided even more competition on United’s left flank.

Telles started just one of the Red Devils six pre-season fixtures this summer – the final match at home to Rayo Vallecano on Sunday – which suggested that he is not in Ten Hag’s plans.

And now TNT Sports claims that Sevilla are on the verge to agree loan deal for Brazilian defender.

The report suggests that Telles is set to undergo a medical with the Spanish team, while the final details of the loan agreement are being settled with the Red Devils.


Telles is not the only Man Utd player who is likely to leave the club before the end of the window as Eric Bailly has attracted interest from several teams including Sevilla, Fulham and Roma.

United are also open to offers for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Phil Jones, Axel Tuanzebe and Brandon Williams.
