Alex Telles Career

Telles was born in Caxias do Sul, a city in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul. At the age of eight, he began playing football with the neighbouring kids and was later enrolled to a youth academy of Esporte Clube Juventude.

Telles began his professional career with Juventude, making his debut on 24 January 2011 against São José-PA. He scored his first goal on 20 August in a 1–1 home draw against Cruzeiro.

In December, Telles was transferred to Grêmio after a partnership was established with Juventude. He made his Grêmio debut on 3 February 2013 against Internacional. On 26 May, Telles made his Série A debut, starting in a 2–0 home win against Náutico.

On 22 January 2014, after long negotiations, Telles completed a move to Turkish club Galatasaray for €6 million, signing a contract that will keep him with the club until 2018. He made his debut two weeks later, starting in a 3–0 win against Tokatspor for the campaign's Turkish Cup, and made his maiden Süper Lig debut in a 3–0 home victory against Eskişehirspor on 8 February 2014. Telles made his first assist for the club against Antalyaspor in a 2–2 away game on 17 February. He also scored his first goal for Galatasaray against Akhisar Belediyespor on 8 March in a 6–1 home win.

In August 2015, there were rumours mentioning Telles as a good choice to fill the place made by the departure of left-back Filipe Luís at Chelsea. In response to the rumour, Galatasaray manager Hamza Hamzaoğlu said the club would only be tempted by an acceptable offer.

On 31 August 2015, Galatasaray agreed to let Telles join Italian club Internazionale of Serie A on a one-year loan for a €1.3 million fee, in addition to €250,000 if Inter qualify for the group stage of the 2016–17 UEFA Champions League. The deal included a buyout option for €8.5 million, letting Internazionale make the move permanent when the loan deal is finished. Telles reunited with Internazionale manager Roberto Mancini in Italy, who previously coached him at Galatasaray.

He made his debut for the club on 13 September in the 2015–16 Serie A matchday 3 against city rivals Milan, playing the entirety of the match as Inter won 1–0.

On 12 July 2016, Portuguese side FC Porto announced the signing of Telles for a €6.5 million fee. According to a Galatasaray press release, the Istanbul club reserved a further 10% of any added value in a future transfer deal. The following day, after signing a five-year contract, he stated: "I ambition titles, I ambition a very beautiful story. I have recently commented with my relatives that I do not want to come here in passing, I want to leave a legacy." On 12 August, in a 3–1 away win against Rio Ave, he marked his league debut and first competitive match with a poor performance and subsequent expulsion. Despite the rough start, Telles gradually cemented himself in the team's starting eleven, scoring his first goal when facing rivals Boavista in a 3–1 home victory at Estádio do Dragão.

On 5 October 2020, Manchester United had agreed a deal in principle to sign Telles for a fee believed to be £15.4 million. The transfer was completed and Telles was announced as a United player that day. He made his debut playing as a left wing-back on 20 October in a 2–1 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League group stage. On 29 September 2021, Telles scored his first goal for Manchester United with a left-footed volley from outside the penalty area in a 2–1 home win against Villarreal CF in the 2021–22 UEFA Champions League group stage.

On 4 August 2022, Telles was loaned to La Liga club Sevilla until the end of the 2022–23 season.

International career

Although he was born in Brazil, Telles also has an Italian passport, making him in the past eligible to represent Italy national team. In October 2016, Telles said that he would "welcome" a call-up from the "Azzurri", adding that his great-grandparents are Italian and he feels Italian. In March 2019, however, he received his first call-up to the Brazil national team. He made his debut for Brazil on 23 March 2019 in a friendly against Panama, as a starter.

The 30-year-old striker completed his move to Manchester United on Friday , having been on loan at Besiktas from Burnley. Weghorst checked whether he could take Telles' number, considering the defender is out on loan with Sevilla until the end of the season.

Alex Telles shows his appreciation after Neymar ran to the stands to celebrate his penalty goal, December 6, 2022
Alex Telles took to Instagram to react to Neymar's heart-warming gesture in Monday's round of 16 hammering of South Korea, which the Manchester United loanee was ruled out of with a tournament-ending knee injury.  The Brazilian left-back shared an Instagram post with the caption 'Just Neymar,' followed by a love heart, after his compatriot had made a direct beeline for him to celebrate his penalty goal in the first half.  Neymar joined fellow forwards Vinicius Jnr., Richarlison and midfielder Lucas Paqueta on the scoresheet against Son Heung-min's South Korea side as the Selecao set up a quarterfinal clash with Croatia.  

Neymar breaks vow to far-right Brazil president Jair Bolsonaro after pledge to dedicate goal to him, December 6, 2022
The Paris Saint-Germain superstar (right) netted a penalty as Tite's side thrashed South Korea 4-1 in their last-16 tie on Monday night. But he celebrated by running over to injured team-mate Alex Telles, who was ruled out of the tournament with a knee problem - breaking his vow to controversial figure Bolsonaro (left). In October, Neymar appeared on a radio show alongside Bolsonaro, in which the far-right politician - ousted from office by left-wing Lula later that month - urged him to use the 'Ihuuuu' phrase he often uses. When encouraged by presenter Carla Cecato, the player then pledged instead to hold up the number '22' with his fingers (inset), in reference to the far-right code at the ballot box.
