Manchester United new signing Alex Telles has tested positive for coronavirus.

Telles was not part of United’s matchday squad for their emphatic 5-0 Champions League win over RB Leipzig and did not arrive with the squad at the Lowry Hotel in Salford before the game.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the United manager, later confirmed that Telles had tested positive and would observe a period of self-isolation, in accordance with government guidelines.

“Telles has tested positive for coronavirus so he’s been out for a few days," Solskjaer said. "No sypmtoms though, so he’ll be fine. Back soon.”
