Manchester United have announced the signing of exciting attacking full-back Alex Telles from FC Porto.
Telles, 27, has been confirmed as United’s second signing of the summer after the Reds secured the talented left-back in a deal from FC Porto.
The former Porto full-back has enjoyed a hugely impressive career so far and has become widely regarded as one of Europe’s most exciting full-backs.
The South American defender has also had spells at Galatasaray and Serie A giants Inter Milan having featured in well over 300 senior matches in all competitions since making his professional debut in January 2011.
Arguably Telles’ most impressive spell in his career has been with his most recent club Porto. The exciting defender had featured in 195 matches in all competitions for the Portuguese champions and has been directly involved in a stunning 83 goals (26 goals and 57 assists).
Telles has lifted eight major trophies in two different countries including three domestic titles with his most recent being the Liga NOS title last season.
Internationally, Telles also possesses an Italian citizenship but after being called-up to Brazil’s senior national side in March 2019, the attacking defender opted to pledge his alliance to the illustrious ‘Verde-Amarela’.
Telles has put pen-to-paper in a deal which will see him commit his immediate future to United on a four-year deal, as per ManUtd.com.
