Manchester United have an agreement in place for the sale of left-back Alex Telles this summer.

Manchester United signed Brazillian left-back Alex Telles for a fee believed to be around £15 million in October 2020, with the player signing from Portuguese side FC Porto.

Highly renowned for his attacking play and goalscoring abilities, Telles was brought in to provide competition to Luke Shaw.

Shaw, however, has since completely nailed the position down in the last few seasons, and after Erik ten Hag brought in Tyrell Malacia to compete with the Englishman, Telles was loaned to Sevilla.

It has now been claimed by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano that United have a verbal agreement in place for the sale of Alex Telles to Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr.

Both the clubs are said to be waiting for the documents to be completed and check for details before the signing is completed.

Telles currently has a market value of £6.4 million, although the price at which the sale has been agreed upon is yet to be revealed.

Telles will become the first major player United have sold this summer after the club sold academy prospect Zidane Iqbal for £800k to FC Utrecht – many current members of the squad having been transfer listed to raise funds.

Others who are free to leave include Fred and Donny van de Beek as Ten Hag looks to continue to trim and improve his squad.
