Man Utd star Alex Telles not wanted by Sevilla on permanent transfer after full-back’s loan spell
SEVILLA allegedly do not want to sign Alex Telles permanently from Manchester United this summer.
The 30-year-old Brazilian international left-back joined the Red Devils from Porto for £15.8million in 2020.

But Telles was deemed surplus to requirements at United by Erik ten Hag.
He made just 26 appearances last season, netting once in the Champions League and providing four assists in the Premier League.
That led to him joining Sevilla on a season-long loan back at the beginning of the campaign
That agreement between the two clubs, who have just been drawn together in the Europa League quarter finals, did not include an option to buy.
However, the Daily Mirror is now claiming that they have no intentions to try and keep him.
Discussing his future recently, Telles said: “I don’t think about the future because that depends on what I do now. Now I have to play and train.
“I’ve always said that I’m happy at Sevilla, I’m treated very well and now I have to play and do my best, which is the most important thing.”
Tyrell Malacia, 23, arrived at Old Trafford at the start of the season to add further competition at left-back.
And it has been Luke Shaw that has been Ten Hag’s preferred choice there.

It seems highly-unlikely that Telles will be given an opportunity to impress back at United, which means he looks set to have to find himself a new club.
He has featured 26 times so far this term for Sevilla.
But despite their progress in Europe, they have struggled domestically, sitting a lowly 13th in LaLiga.
