Alex Telles has been included in the Sevilla squad for the La Liga opener against CA Osasuna in Pamplona. The Brazilian moved to Seville at the start of the season on loan with no option to buy.
Telles, before the appointment of Erik ten Haag at Manchester United, was a regular in the first team. However, he would continue his trade in Spain for more game time before returning to Old Trafford.
Sevilla’s decision to sign Alex Telles may not be unconnected with the recent departure of French defender Jules Kounde to Barcelona.
Last season Sevilla finished fourth on the league table and will compete in the UEFA Champions League, which is expected to give Telles a significant boost. Although there’s no guarantee he would command a starting shirt almost instantly, he could be guaranteed more minutes.
Sevilla’s inactive status in the transfer market raises questions about the team’s readiness for Europe and the La Liga, unlike Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid that have spent a significant amount in the transfer market lately.
Will Alex Telles play for Sevilla at CA Osasuna today?
Most likely not the case for Telles due to the consistency of Marcos Acuña, who has held on to his position. The most important thing for Telles is being registered for the 2022/23 La Liga season, unlike top teams who have found it challenging to register some players.
