Fabrizio Romano confirms Alex Telles transfer with Man Utd set to bank at last £4m from sale

Fabrizio Romano has confirmed Alex Telles is set to leave Manchester United for the Saudi Pro League.

The United defender will complete a move to join former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo at Al Nassr for an initial fee of around £4million.

Romano tweeted on Wednesday: “Alex Telles to Al Nassr, done deal and here we go! Agreement ready after deal revealed earlier today. Understand Manchester United will receive £4m fixed fee plus add-ons.

“Told salary will be 7m net per season plus add-ons.”

Telles spent last season on loan at Sevilla, where he won the Europa League with the La Liga side. Of course, their run to the final featured a quarter-final victory against the 30-year-old’s parent club.

The Brazil international, who joined United from Porto in a deal worth up to £15.3million in October 2020, has had a relatively difficult time at Old Trafford.

The full-back made 50 appearances for the Premier League giants, scoring his only goal for the club in a 2-1 Champions League victory over Villarreal in the 2021-22 season.

Indeed, one of Telles’ most memorable moments at the club was when he was involved in a training ground bust-up with youngster Hannibal Mejbri during Ralf Rangnick's tumultuous reign - an incident which the Sun claimed left the rest of the United squad “stunned”.

It appears to be a one-in, one-out policy at United, with the club set to announce the £47.2million signing of Inter goalkeeper Andre Onana.

The Old Trafford side will reportedly pay an initial £43.8million for the Cameroonian, with the additional £3.4million to be paid in add-ons.

United hope to complete the move ahead of their upcoming tour of the United States, though they will have to arrange a visa for the 27-year-old.

The shot-stopper, who previously worked for Erik ten Hag at Ajax, will join on a five-year contract, with the option of a further year.
