Man Utd monitor Alex Telles after reports Brazil defender has tested positive for coronavirus again

Manchester United are monitoring the situation regarding Alex Telles, following reports which claimed he had tested positive for coronavirus while on international duty with Brazil.

The left-back came off the bench to feature in Brazil’s 1-0 win over Venezuela in World Cup qualifying on Friday, but he is a doubt for the second game of the international break against Uruguay on Tuesday after producing a positive Covid-19 test.

The Brazilian federation said Telles would undergo a second test before a decision is made on whether he can travel with the squad to Montevideo.
