Manchester United star Alex Telles tests positive for Covid-19
The Brazilian full-back joined United on deadline day. One of the best attacking left-backs on the continent, he is set to add dynamism to our flank.
“Telles has tested positive for coronavirus so he’s been out for a few days.”
Solskjaer revealed that Telles is showing no symptoms and is set to return to action soon.
This could explain his absence from the squads that faced Chelsea and RB Leipzig.
The Brazilian’s lone appearance for us came in the trip to the Parc des Princes to face PSG. He was impressive on the night and showed off his set-piece prowess.

Guys, I want to thank you for the messages of affection that I received from the moment that United announced that I have been diagnosed with COVID-19. I want to say that I am fine, isolated and soon I will be back with all my strength to help my teammates. Once again, thank you all for your lovely messages! 🔥🙌🏽💪🏽🙏🏽
The player too confirmed the news and thanked fans for their support. He did this through a post on Instagram.
It is heartening to know that Telles is fine and in good spirits. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope he returns to action soon.
