Manchester United plan Alex Telles sale; reject Roma loan offer

July 17, 2021

Manchester United are ready to sell Alex Telles this summer.

Sky Italia says Manchester United have rejected a loan approach from Jose Mourinho‘s Roma as they want to sell the left-back permanently.

Telles moved to Old Trafford from Porto for a £15million fee last summer but was limited to just nine Premier League appearances due to excellent displays from England international Luke Shaw.

Mourinho, meanwhile, is looking for a temporary option at left-back at Roma after Italy star Leonardo Spinazzola picked up an anterior cruciate ligament injury during Euro 2020 and will be sidelined for several months.

But United have blocked Mourinho and Roma from signing Telles on loan as they wish to sell the Brazil international.
