Manchester United defender Alex Telles has said that he is unsure where he will be playing following his season-long loan with Spanish club Sevilla.
The Brazil international became United’s third-choice left-back earlier this summer after dropping behind Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia in the pecking order.
Hence, there were no surprises that he was loaned out to Sevilla for the current campaign. The 29-year-old is now an established starter for the La Liga giants.
In an exclusive interview with AS, Telles has now said that he is very happy at Sevilla where he has gained a lot of confidence from playing regular first-team football.
He added that he does not know where his future could lie, but is prepared to give his best in Spain.
Telles said: “I am very happy at Sevilla, the club and the fans have given me a lot of confidence. I will give my best here and I don’t know what will happen next year.”
Telles could end up joining Sevilla permanently
Telles started the season as a regular substitute for the Andalusian outfit but over the past month, he has been consistently playing over 60 minutes in all competitions.
The former Porto man has contributed two assists from 13 appearances for Sevilla and he will be hoping to make more goal contributions for the rest of the campaign.
If he manages to stay consistent, there is a good possibility that Sevilla will look to pursue his services on a permanent deal during next summer’s transfer window.
United paid an initial £13.6 million to sign back in 2020 and the hierarchy will be hoping to recoup as much as possible, provided Telles continues to impress.
Since the beginning of this year, Telles has been a regular with the Brazilian national side and looks on course to make the 26-man squad for the World Cup.
If he can stand-out with his performances at the major showpiece in Qatar, it should only benefit United in the long run in terms of placing a price tag on him.
