Manchester United’s Brazilian defender Alex Teles is closing in on a loan move to Sevilla in La Liga.
Telles has been thrust into the fold at United following the arrival of new manager Erik Ten Haag’s first signing Tyrell Malasia.
With the former Feyenoord man competing with Luke Shaw for the left-back spot, Telles has spent much of the pre-season playing in central defence.
However, this will not continue in this Premier League season after Lisandro Martinez signed from Ajax.
It means Telles risks his World Cup spot if he doesn’t get moving.
The 29-year-old was recalled to the Brazil squad in January after a 14-month absence.
Telles joined United in 2020, signing for €15m (£13.6m) from Porto.
