Erik Ten Hag is still trying to revolutionize Manchester United's structure and mold the team to his liking and bringing the best players in the world and selling the players that he thinks are not good enough to play for such a big club like Manchester United, where the pressure and demands should be higher than any other team in the Premier League.

One of them is Alex Telles. The Brazilian arrived to Old Trafford during the summer of 2020 after four great seasons at Portuguese side, FC Porto in exchange for 15 million euros. The left-footed shined with ‘The Dragons’ as an attacking fullback scoring 26 goals and giving out over 50 assists to his teammates.

His signing with Manchester United had the supporters hyped as he would be competition to Luke Shaw, who was never the same after the injury suffered back in 2015. However, he didn't play much during his first year at the club because Shaw was on better form. Even then, he showed glimpses of his attacking ability, but his defensive work rate was really poor.

Last season, neither Shaw nor Telles were at the level that Manchester United demands, as well as the rest of the defensive line. The ‘Red Devils’ conceded 57 goals in the Premier League, finishing in sixth place. This year, Erik Ten Hag had to choose between this two left-backs since Brandon Williams came back from his loan at Norwich City and has impressed the Dutchman in preseason.

Alex Telles new destiny

Transfer market must reliable journalist, Fabrizio Romano, informed today that Spanish team Sevilla FC, are really close to reach an agreement with Manchester United for Alex Telles. It's only a matter of details between clubs to make it official. At the same time, Paul Hirst, from ‘Times Sport’ added that the deal will be a season-long loan.
