What Bruno Fernandes told new Man Utd signing Alex Telles after £15m transfer

Bruno Fernandes has told Alex Telles he can expect a warm welcome from his new Manchester United team-mates following his move to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils wrapped up a deal for Telles on transfer deadline day, with the Brazil defender signing a four-year contract at Old Trafford.

Telles, 27, arrives from Porto and has cost Manchester United £15.4million. He became Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s second summer signing following Donny van de Beek.

United’s deadline-day signing has already spoken to new team-mate Fernandes and says he expects to ‘settle in very well’ following his conversation with the Portuguese midfielder.

I believe I’m going to meet a marvellous group,’ Telles told Manchester United’s official website.

I’ve spoken to Bruno Fernandes and he’s said how welcoming the boys are. I believe I will settle very well into the group.

Telles also revealed he spoke to former Porto team-mate Diogo Dalot ahead of his move to Manchester United.

I spoke to Diogo and he sent me a message to wish me good luck,’ Telles added.

United is a big club and I want to help United grow as a football club. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

‘I’m very happy to be here and I’m going to give everything to fight for the club and do the best possible. It’s a very unique opportunity and I’ll do the best I can.’

Telles is expected to be joined at Manchester United by the former PSG striker Edinson Cavani.
