We are into the final month of this summer’s transfer window and although Erik ten Hag, the new Manchester United manager, will have wanted to have made more progress by this point, the final 30 days could prove to be pivotal.
Six first-team players had already left on free transfers by the time Ten Hag took charge of his first training session and since then, the futures of several others have been up in the air.
Alex Telles is one of those players and the arrival of Tyrell Malacia, who joined the club from Feyenoord last month, has further hinted that Telles’ days at Old Trafford could be numbered.
Now, journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Telles will be joining Sevilla on a season-long loan, stamping the agreement with his signature ‘Here we go’.

As per the report, United have reached a full agreement with Sevilla over a season-long loan but the Andalusian club do not have an option to buy the player in 2023. Now, it’s claimed that contracts are being prepared to be signed this week.
Telles’ future at Old Trafford has looked bleak from the moment he started to feature regularly and the prospect of him permanently occupying the left-back position was unrealistic.
The Brazil international is behind both Luke Shaw and Malacia in the pecking order and his departure could allow the club to save money on the wage bill.
It’s likely that United will look to cash in on the defender when he returns to the club next summer.
