Man United must ax Alex Telles

Manchester United will now look to the summer transfer window to improve their squad and put the club back in a position to compete for trophies next season.

What’s the most recent?

According to Portuguese news channel Correio da Manha (via Sport Witness), Porto is “watching” defender Alex Telles.

According to the report, the Manchester United player has ‘numbered his days’ for Erik ten Hag’s arrival at Old Trafford and with the new manager putting together a long list of players to unload, Telles could be on his way out.

Ten Hag has to ax Telles

When it comes to defending this season, Manchester United have come under a lot of criticism for their poor performance which was ultimately reflected in the outcome of their season.

In the Premier League, the Red Devils have conceded the eighth most goals against 20 teams, which will need to improve dramatically if Ten Hag is to challenge in the league next season, meaning he will have to be relentless when it comes to making changes in the defense line.

This season Telles has been excellent, but his shortcomings in defense have cost Man United dearly at times, with two penalties giving their top four rivals, then Arsenal, a penalty last month to double their lead with a late challenge to Bukayo. Sake in the box.

The £78k-a-week flop that was dubbed “horrible” by journalist Casey Evans, lost the ball every 4.9 minutes in his 20 Premier League appearances this season and was dribbled past an average of 0.8 times per game, showing that while he may be effective going forward, his inability to take care of the ball when he has can cause problems in the defensive game.

That said, Ten Hag will have to find a replacement for the player if he is moved this summer, as Luke Shaw is stricken with injuries and there are currently no plans to extend his contract which expires in June 2023. †

So there will be a big question mark about his future and whether Man United can identify a worthy replacement.
