Alex Telles signs for Manchester United, becoming the Red Devils’ second addition of the summer.
Following the arrival of Donny van de Beek, there was a real lull in the transfer market for the Old Trafford outfit.
Now, though, it’s all system’s go. Alex Telles has been confirmed as United’s latest signing, with the left-back joining from FC Porto.
Shortly after confirming the move, United posted a photo of Alex Telles wearing United colours for the first time as he signed his Reds contract.

Once again, Fabrizio Romano was on the money with this one, getting it right from the get-go, as soon as the rumour began.
Now, Luke Shaw has some serious competition, providing Telles can live up to the hype of course. No doubt this will push the Englishman on to play even better, while the Brazilian will be desperate for starts.
Upon joining United, Telles said:
“To join a club with the prestige of Manchester United is a huge honour. You have to work hard to get to this moment in your career and now I am coming to this club, I can promise that I will give everything in my heart to be a success here.
“I won many trophies at FC Porto and I want to continue that at United. The manager has a clear plan and direction for this team and I can’t wait to pull on the famous shirt.”
Then, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added:
“First and foremost, I welcome Alex to United. He is a player we have been tracking for some time and his performances over the past few years are exactly what we are looking for. He is a fighter and a winner and will add real determination and competition to the squad.
“Alex has the qualities, both as a player and as a person, that we want here at Manchester United.”
With a fortnight to prepare for his first game, Telles now has ample time to settle in and get familiar with his new surroundings. Judging by his quotes, this guy is an absolute winner. I don’t doubt he’ll work hard and do everything he can to prove his fitness to try and earn a start.
Welcome to the biggest club in the world, Alex!
