In Summary

  • Telles joined United from Porto on a four-year contract in October, before testing positive for coronavirus later in the month.

Manchester United remain hopeful Alex Telles will be available for Saturday’s match against West Brom after the defender tested negative for Covid-19.

Reports suggested the Brazilian had tested positive over the weekend while on international duty.

However, the Brazilian Football Confederation said the 27-year-old will travel with the squad after returning a second negative test.

United earlier said they would “make an assessment” when he returned.

In a statement released before Telles’ negative test was confirmed, the club said: “It is still hoped he will be available to play in Saturday’s Premier League match against West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford.”
