English Premier League club Manchester United signed Brazilian left back Alex Telles from Portugal’s Porto on Monday.

“Manchester United is delighted to confirm the arrival of Alex Telles from FC Porto. The defender has signed a four-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year,” the English club said in a statement.

Telles, 27, told his new club that it is a “huge honour” to play for Manchester United.

“You have to work hard to get to this moment in your career and now I am coming to this club, I can promise that I will give everything in my heart to be a success here,” Telles said.

Telles previously played for Turkish club Galatasaray, Italy’s Inter Milan, and Porto.

He helped Galatasaray win the Turkish Super Lig title in the 2014-15 season.

Telles also helped Porto win the Portuguese top-tier Liga NOS titles in 2018 and 2020.

He produced 26 goals and 57 assists in 195 appearances for Porto since 2016.
