Alex Telles is a Man United player. The left-back is set to join Donny van de Beek, as the Red Devils’ second signing of the summer. Hopefully, Edinson Cavani won’t be too far away either…

Telles’ name has been linked somewhat consistently recently. However, it looked as if haggling over fees meant the deal was dead. Well, needs-must for United, who are making the plunge to sign a left-sided defender less than 24 hours after shipping six at home to Tottenham Hotspur…

Again, the credit goes to Fabrizio Romano with the latest here. The journalist took to Twitter to confirm that Alex Telles has signed a contract until June 2024, with the 27-year-old now a Man United player.

As is usual with United signings these days, the club hold the option for an extra season, while an announcement will happen within the next few hours.

Check out Fabrizio Romano’s tweet here:

United needed at least a few faces in today. Telles has to be just the start of a busy final six hours of the window. That defence has been leaky, and although he has improved over the last year or so, Luke Shaw continues to remain inconsistent.

It’s harsh on Shaw, but United simply have to move in a different direction. I do worry about Telles a bit because our history when it comes to signing South American’s has been pretty dreadful. I’m hoping Telles changes that by hitting the ground running, but you’d imagine he’ll need some time to settle into life in his new surroundings…

It looks like we won’t have to wait too long before we see the photo of Telles holding the United shirt aloft, all-smiles. That’s good news, albeit this transfer window has been an absolute disaster…
