Manchester United new-boy Alex Telles has kicked life at Old Trafford off with a bang after it emerged that no other squad player has created as many Champions League chances as the Brazilian defender.
Telles, 27, joined United from FC Porto on deadline day in the summer in a transfer which cost the Reds’ hierarchy just £13.5m, as per Transfermarkt.
Since his recent arrival and after making his competitive debut against Paris-Saint Germain in the Champions League, Telles was forced to miss the next run of games due to a positive COVID-19 test.
However, now back and fully fit, the South American also appears to be firing on all cylinders.
United’s new 27-year-old was named in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting-11 for tonight’s match against Istanbul and the left-back did not disappoint.
In light of Telles’ brilliant performance a remarkable stat has emerged which confirms that no other player among United’s ranks have created more chances than the Brazilian.
What makes Telles’ contributions even more impressive is the fact he has featured for just 157-minutes in this season’s Champions League out of a possible 360.
