In the 22nd minute of Manchester United’s Champions League tie against Istanbul Basaksehir, summer signing Alex Telles showed his brilliant quality to spark an attacking opportunity for the Red Devils.
The left-back used what can it only be described as a clever feint or dummy to let the ball roll out towards the line, leaving him free to beat Edin Visca – the man who scored last time the sides met.
Telles then galloped down the flank when he paused and picked out Marcus Rashford with a pinpoint long-range pass that he made from just behind the halfway line.
Unfortunately, the amazing pass led to nothing as Rashford was wrestled off the ball by an Istanbul defender.

Telles is a fine player, it’s nice to see that the Brazilian has now moved to one of Europe’s biggest leagues as it will be interesting to see how he fares at the top level.
