Manchester United new boy Alex Telles has tested positive for Covid-19, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed.
The deadline-day signing from Porto impressed in his debut for the Red Devils last week at Paris St Germain, where he helped the side to a 2-1 win in their Champions League opener.
But Telles was conspicuous by his absence from the squad for United’s draw with Chelsea at the weekend, just as he was following Wednesday’s 5-0 Group H win against RB Leipzig.
Asked about the Brazil international’s situation, Solskjaer said: “Telles has tested positive for coronavirus.
“He’s been out for a few days, no symptoms though so he’ll be fine, back soon.”
