Telles joined United in 2020 from Porto but was unable to tie down a starting spot in the Red Devils’ starting 11. New Man United boss Erik ten Hag has already brought in the left-back’s replacement, in the form of Tyrell Malacia, who will be looking to push Luke Shaw for a starting spot during the upcoming season.
Although Telles’ move is a loan deal, it is highly likely that he has played his last game for Man United. The contract details of his Sevilla move are unknown but it could include a buy option, which would work out cheaper for the La Liga side rather than making a permanent switch this summer.
