Manchester United make final decision on Alex Telles ahead of the next campaign and according to Sky Sport Italia (h/t Sport Witness), the Red Devils are not planning to send the left-back on loan.
Thus, it is a transfer blow to AS Roma’s new manager Jose Mourinho as he reportedly wanted to snap up the left-back on a season-long loan deal to provide a temporary cover for his injured left-back Leonardo Spinazzola.
The 28-year-old is expected to either stay at Old Trafford for the 2021—22 season or be sold.
Alex Telles joined Manchester United for a £15m fee in 2020 and was expected to become a first-choice left-back.
However, resurgent Luke Shaw had other ideas and made the position his own last season, winning United’s Players’ Player of the Year award.
The former Porto defender ended up making just 9 appearances in the Premier League in his debut season for the Red Devils.
