Manchester United who are Premier League giants have been hit with a big blow after their Brazilian defender Alex Telles tested positive for COVID-19 for the second time in two months.
Alex Telles was first tested positive for the virus in October and that has made the 27-year-old to miss four games for the Old Trafford landlords.
He joined up with Brazil’s squad for the international break as he produced a negative result and the former Porto defender even came off the bench in his nation’s 1-0 win over Venezuela.
According to the latest report on UK Sun, Allex Telles was confirmed positive on Saturday, November 14, and has been told to go into isolation.
Telles would then be forced to return to United to undergo a second period of isolation which would be a huge blow to Ole Solskjaer.
Manchester United chiefs are already without Luke Shaw for at least a month due to a hamstring injury sustained in the 3-1 win over Everton.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are currently occupying 14th position on the Premier League table with 10 points after seven games played.
United manager Ole Solskjaer is currently under pressure for him to deliver at Old Trafford.

The 21-year-old Frenchman has been impressive for the German club since he broke into the first team and his performances so far have caught the attention of Manchester United.
Since 2017 after joining Dortmund from Paris-Saint-Germain, Zagadou has played 43 games for the German side scoring four goals so far as a defender.
The Red Devils could grab themselves a cut-price bargain as Zagadou’s contract expires in 2022 and Dortmund will not want to lose him for free.
