In what appears to be a weekend of departures for Manchester United, Alex Telles’ move to Saudi Arabia is said to be done.

The Brazilian full-back has had a rollercoaster week as he first was set to join Al-Nassr in a move which was ‘verbally agreed’ on Tuesday.

Some confusion followed as reports suggested the Saudi Arabian side were back-tracking on the deal as they had second thoughts over the move.

All the while United were said to be awaiting documents to complete the transfer to see Telles depart.

Now though, the move seems to be back on and closer than ever.

Telles to Al-Nassr is done

Reports are now suggesting official confirmation on the deal is close as a deal is done in a transfer reportedly worth £4million.

Fabrizio Romano who has been on-top of this deal all week has now revealed a huge update, he tweeted:

“Understand Alex Telles has travelled with Al Nassr squad to Japan after the medical tests completed yesterday”.

Before adding: “Deal done and signed with Manchester United. Official soon.”

This development will be music to United fans’ ears with many hopeful that the club would begin making moves on the outgoing front.

With Telles being among the first on everybody’s list, due to his age, wages and his United career clearly being done.

Weekend of departures at Old Trafford

Telles isn’t the only United star this week sealing a departure, with Anthony Elanga set to fly back to England to complete his move to Nottingham Forest.

Forest are said to have had a £15m bid accepted, with the Swedish forward travelling for his medical which is scheduled on Monday.

This is a good start from United, however there are numerous other names that they will hope to be selling by the end of August.
