Manchester United left-back Alex Telles has tested positive for coronavirus, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed.

Telles, who recently signed from Portuguese club Porto for £15.4m, was not involved in Wednesday’s 5-0 Champions League win against German side RB Leipzig at Old Trafford. The 27-year-old was also missing in Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Chelsea in the Premier League.

Solskjaer confirmed the Brazil international returned a positive test.

“Telles has tested positive for coronavirus so he’s been out for a few days,” Solskjaer said. “No symptoms though, so he’ll be fine. Back soon.”
