Brazil defender Alex Telles has left Manchester United to join Al-Nassr in a permanent transfer.

Telles, 30, is set for a reunion with former United team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, who signed for the Saudi Pro League side in January.

The fee or length of his contract have not been confirmed by either club.

Telles made 50 appearances for United at left-back having signed from Porto for £13.6m in 2020, but spent last season on loan at Sevilla.

Saudi Pro League teams have made headlines this summer, with stars like France striker Karim Benzema joining Ronaldo in the country.

Telles is the latest Premier League player to make the switch, following players such as Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante and Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino.

The Brazilian, who has 12 international caps and made two appearances at the 2022 World Cup, competed with England’s Luke Shaw for the left-back spot at Old Trafford.

He made his loan switch to Sevilla last season after struggling for first-team opportunities and went on to make 38 appearances for the La Liga side, starting in their victory over Roma on penalties in the Europa League final.

A statement on the United website read:external-link “We’d like to thank Alex for his contributions to the club over the last three years and would like to wish him all the best for the future.”
