Manchester United defender, Alex Telles has come out to rule out the prospect of joining Benfica as he nears an Old Trafford exit. He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, due to the fact that he enjoyed a trophy-laden four-year stint with Porto between 2016 and 2020, he cannot be seen joining a rival in the same country before retirement.
Telles added that he already made history with Porto, so any transfer from MUFC will be outside of Portugal.
His words, “When you play for a club and leave a legacy, leave a good image, fought so hard to play and leave a good image… I, Alex, would not play for the rival, for example. Because, for example, I made history at Porto, everyone likes me there. There’s no way to play for Benfica, you know?”
