Alex Telles has said he wants to stay at Manchester United and win trophies, despite great speculation about his future at the club.
The defender joined United from Porto a year ago but struggled for minutes as the season continued. With Luke Shaw establishing himself as Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s undisputed first choice for left back, Telles only made three Premier League matches after the turn of the year. Two of them came in the final stages when United heavily rotated their group.

The situation is not expected to get much better for Telles with the impending arrival of Kieran Trippier, who United sees as an option on both sides of the defense. Consequently, 90 minutes understand that Telles has been informed that he can leave.
Speaking to United’s official website, however, Telles said he is determined to prove himself and wants to win trophies after cruelly losing the Europa League final on penalties last season.
He said: “Last season we came very close to winning trophies, so we are entering the next season with a lot of desire and I really want to show my work and my value here at the club.”
Telles spoke before United’s friendship with Derby County, and with Shaw on holiday after Euro 2020, the 28-year-old wants to use it as a platform to show off his abilities.
“I’m really looking forward to the game, I enter the game with a lot of desire,” he added. “I think it’s a really good opportunity for us players who have been here the last two weeks.

“It will be a tough test but we are very well prepared for it. We have worked really hard in training today and this past week, and I think it is an opportunity to show my value, my quality and my potential here at Manchester United.
“I know Manchester United and the fans really believe in me.”
