Alex Telles joins Al Nassr on a permanent deal

Alex Telles has joined Al Nassr from Manchester United.

Brazilian left-back Alex Telles has finalized his transfer to Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr on a permanent deal from Manchester United. The move marks the end of the talented defender’s stint at Old Trafford, where he spent two seasons with the Red Devils.

Telles arrived at Manchester United in October 2020, joining from Portuguese giants FC Porto. During his time at the English club, he showcased glimpses of his attacking and defensive abilites, often providing an additional threat from set-pieces and whipping in dangerous crosses. However, stiff competition for the left-back position, coupled with injuries that disrupted his playing time, limited his overall impact on the team.

His versatility and experience added depth to the squad and served as a valuable asset when called upon. Now, with the opportunity for a fresh start, Alex Telles will look to make his mark at Al Nassr, one of Saudi Arabia’s top football clubs.
