Alex Telles arrived in Seville, played (even as a centre-back), was injured in the World Cup with Brazil and will not continue in Nervión, where they have already signed Adrià Pedrosa so that he competes with Marcos Acuña for a position on the left side. The very important salary that Telles receives at Manchester United, lowered somewhat to reach Sánchez-Pizjuán last season, closes the doors of the red and white club for him again. And he confirms it like this on the ‘Denilson Show’ podcast: “I have not heard from Sevilla.”
“I was on loan at Sevilla and, honestly, right now I don’t think about anything else. I’m not going to say ‘I don’t know where I’m going’. I have a contract with United and one day to introduce myself, I haven’t heard from Sevilla either. Obviously a lot is said during the summer, but I make it very clear: I am resting, focused on the holidays, taking care of my knee and, as soon as there is any conversation, I will call you to inform you (to Denilson). I have another year on my contract with United and there is an option to renew another season,” Telles said.
It seems, then, that the Brazilian footballer harbored some hope of continuing in a team that has permeated his heart and with which he lifted the Seventh Europa League in Budapest on the last day of May. This is demonstrated by some beautiful farewell words that he wrote on his social networks: “Life is full of cycles and today I close another in my life. It was a year of joy, dreams come true, new friends and a gigantic Europa League title. Sevilla, more than a club, is a family. A family that begins in the stands and ends on the field. By the way, when I talk about family, Seville has and will always have a place in my heart and the eternal memory of the birth of my daughter Antonella. So I can only be grateful that I had the opportunity to live this history and wear this shirt of so much history and so many achievements. Thank you Seville.
Related to the Portuguese Benfica in recent days, Telles makes it clear that he will not play for the Águilas either after having played for a rival like Porto: “When you play for a club and leave a good image, a legacy… I know that everyone is professional, but I, Alex, would not play for the rival. I made history at Porto, everyone wants me there, so I can’t play at Benfica”.
