Alex Telles has joined Sevilla FC from Manchester United FC on a season-long loan.
The Spanish club announced: “Sevilla FC and Manchester United FC have reached an agreement for the season-long loan of Alex Telles.
“The left-back joined the Red Devils in October 2020 and has made a half-century of appearances for the club, scoring a solitary goal, a volley from outside the area in a UEFA Champions League match against Villarreal.”
The Red Devils confirmed the deal, stating: “Manchester United defender and Brazil international Alex Telles has agreed to spend the 2022/23 season on loan with Sevilla in Spain.
“The 29-year-old joined the Reds from FC Porto in October 2020, and he has registered 50 appearances in two campaigns while competing with Luke Shaw for the left-back position.
“Telles has also scored one goal as a Red: a sensational volley against Villarreal at Old Trafford that was later voted the Champions League’s third-best Goal of the Season by visitors to UEFA.com.
“Telles is set to join a Sevilla side that finished fourth in La Liga last season and is managed by former Spain coach Julen Lopetegui, who notably had Anthony Martial for a temporary spell earlier this year.
“This move will enable Alex to play in a sixth country after starting his career with Juventude and Gremio in his native Brazil, before moving to Galatasaray in Turkey, Internazionale in Italy, Porto in Portugal and, of course, United in England.
“A popular and professional member of the squad, Telles leaves United with everybody’s best wishes for the campaign to come and Reds supporters will be following Sevilla’s results from afar.”
