Injuries & Suspensions

Alex Telles set to join Al-Nassr, Tyrell Malacia & Rhys Bennett out of US tour due to injuries as Manchester United sign Jonny Evans on short-term deal

Manchester United have announced that Jonny Evans has returned to the club on a short-term deal.

Evans has been training with the Red Devils since he left relegated Leicester City after his contract expired.

The 35-year-old left Man United in 2015 for West Bromwich Albion before joining the Foxes in 2018.

The Northern Ireland international brings loads of experience to the table, and he could look to secure a long-term deal with his old club by impressing during this short spell.

While Man United have added to their backline they are set to lose Alex Telles permanently.

According to The Athletic, the 30-year-old is nearing a move to join Saudi Pro League club Al Nassr with talks underway between the two clubs.

Telles will be reuniting with Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo after the duo played together at Old Trafford in the 2021-22 campaign.

The Brazilian spent last season on loan at Sevilla, featuring in 38 games across all competitions and helping them win the Europa League.

Man United manager Erik ten Hag is reshaping his defence and could also lose Harry Maguire after stripping the England international of the captaincy.

Ivory Coast international Eric Bailly is also expected to leave having spent last term on loan at Marseille, and the Red Devils are likely to add one or two defenders this summer.

Tyrell Malacia and Rhys Bennett will miss their tour of the United States due to injuries.
