Manchester United's Alex Telles tests positive for coronavirus

Manchester United defender Alex Telles has tested positive for COVID-19 but is showing no symptoms and is expected to return to action soon, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.

Telles, who arrived at Old Trafford from Porto earlier this month, missed the weekend's goalless draw with Chelsea and was absent from United's matchday squad for Wednesday's 5-0 Champions League win over RB Leipzig.

"Telles has tested positive for coronavirus so he's been out for a few days," Solskjaer told reporters on Wednesday. "No symptoms though, so he'll be fine. Back soon."

The Brazilian full-back thanked fans for their support.

"I want to say that I am fine, isolated and soon I will be back with all my strength to help my team mates," Telles said on Instagram.
