Alex Telles wants to pay back the fans for their belief in him amid rumours Man Utd have rejected Roma’s interest in taking him on loan.
The Brazilian joined the Premier League outfit from Porto in October 2020, but has only managed 9 Premier League appearances since then.
Shaw looked back at his best this season, earning the Man Utd Players’ Player of the Year award and keeping Telles out of the side.
One of the main reasons that Telles was brought in by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was due to his fantastic record of goals and assists at his former club Porto.
The full-back scored an exceptional 21 goals in just 129 league games in Portugal, but hasn’t managed to register a single league goal since his move to Old Trafford.
A report on Wednesday claimed that Roma were ‘in talks’ with Man Utd over a possible move for Telles with Jose Mourinho interested in the left-back.
However, Sky Sport Italia (via Forza Roma) claim ‘there is no room for negotiation’ if the Italian club want to loan Telles as the Red Devils will only discuss a permanent move.
And today Telles has thanked Man Utd fans for their belief in him and insisted he wants to show them what he can do next season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
“I’m really happy to be back here,” Telles told United Daily. “It’s a pleasure to be at Manchester United coming into my second season.
“Last season, we came really close to winning trophies, so we go into this next season with a lot of desire and I really want to show my work and my value here at the club.
“I’m really looking forward to the game, I’m going into the game with a lot of desire. I think it’s a really great opportunity for us players who have been here for the last two weeks.
“It’s going to be a tough test but we’re really well prepared for it. We’ve been working really hard in training today, and this last week, and I believe it’s an opportunity to show my value my quality and my potential here at Manchester United.
“I know Manchester United Football Club and the fans really believe in me.”
