The report suggests that if United received an offer that exceeded the fees they paid (around £ 15.4million) for the former FC Porto full-back, the Manchester club would let him go.
What did Telles say about Bruno Fernandes?
Speaking in the January 2021 edition of Inside United magazine, Telles revealed that Fernandes was “boring to play against” in Portugal and was lyrical about his quality.
Telles told Inside United: “So Bruno and I have known each other for quite some time now. Bruno has always stood out wherever he has played and he is without a doubt our main player here today. We were rivals on the pitch and today we are a team. – teammates playing on the same team, I told him back then it was quite boring to play against on the pitch, always wanting to win, obviously.
“He’s a guy with a huge heart and immense quality, he’s there for everyone to see him and I don’t need to talk about Bruno’s quality anymore. “
He added: “It’s a pleasure to play with him. He’s a great guy who is always ready to help everyone and he really makes a difference and that’s great. “
Why didn’t Telles to United work?
Such has been largely out of favor with United manager Solskjaer, who has favored Luke Shaw over left-back this season.
The 28-year-old has been limited to just eight Premier League starts and has failed to secure a consistent streak in the squad, according to WhoScored.
Compared to Shaw, Telles has produced a considerably lower attacking threat for United with just 1.3 key assists per league game this season, with the England international averaging 2.3. Indeed, the Brazilian has also been dribbled once per game in the Premier League, while that only happens to Shaw 0.5 times per game on average.
Have United been linked with another left-back?
If Telles were to leave the club, United would end up with Brandon Williams as the only cover for the left-back which would surely prompt the club to sign for the post.
Solskjaer’s side have been linked with Sporting Lisbon full-back Nuno Mendes. According to Record according to Sport Witness, the Portuguese club have already been contacted by United representatives regarding the player.
