Alexis Sanchez is set to follow Cristiano Ronaldo to Al Nasr.
The Saudis pulled off a shocking transfer last winter. Ronaldo, considered the greatest player of all time alongside Lionel Messi, ended his European career and headed to Saudi Arabia. His destination was Al Nasr. Ronaldo received a huge amount of money to start a new life in Saudi Arabia.
His choice was initially criticized by many. People thought he was choosing money over honor. However, many European players have since followed in his footsteps. Real Madrid’s “ace” and 2022 Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, Kalidou Koulibaly, Leo Varane, Édouard Mendy, and many others have gone to Saudi Arabia.
And now, a former teammate of Ronaldo’s at Manchester United is on the verge of a move to Saudi Arabia. The man in question is Teles. European soccer transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano tweeted on social media on Monday (July 19), “Teles is going to Al Nasr. It’s a done deal. Everything has been agreed. United will receive a fixed transfer fee of £4 million plus bonuses. His salary is expected to be around £7 million.” He didn’t leave out his signature line, “Here We Go.
This brings to an end Teles’ short stay at United. He joined the club from Porto in October 2020 and played in the rotation, mostly in cup competitions. This was due to the fact that Luke Shaw was holding down his position at left back. In the 2021-22 season, with Shaw injured, he was given more playing time, and he performed well.
However, it was far from what United were looking for. Ahead of the 2022-23 season, new manager Eric ten Hagg was unhappy with Teles’ performance and brought in Tyrrell Malacia. Eventually, Teles lost out to Shaw and Malacia and went out on loan. His destination was Sevilla.
He was in good form. 안전놀이터 With two assists in 32 appearances, including cup competitions, Tellez helped Sevilla beat “home” team Manchester United in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Europa League (UEL) to advance to the next round. He then started the final against AS Roma, playing the full 95 minutes and scoring the winner to secure the title.
With his accomplishments in hand, he returned to United, but there was no place for him. With only a year left on his contract, he quickly pushed for a move and negotiated with the Saudis. Negotiations progressed quickly and an agreement was reached.
