Man United signing Alex Telles has revealed that he held talks with Portuguese Bruno Fernandes before joining the club.

The Red Devils waited until the deadline day before sealing the signature of the Brazilian left-back after several weeks of speculations and negotiations with FC Porto.

Alex Telles revealed that he feels safe to be at the club after confiding with Bruno Fernandes and was told that Man United players are welcoming and that gets him excited about the move.

After losing out on the signature Real Madrid left-back Sergio Reguilon, the Red Devils spent £13.5 million on the Brazilian to land him from FC Porto on a long-term deal.

He has promised to give the club his best to be able to achieve success in the coming years, as well as get the club back on track after a very slow start of the season.

However, Man United have been blasted for failing to sign a centre defender that will partner Harry Maguire, especially after suffering a humiliating defeat to Tottenham.

Meanwhile, Man United also secured the services of Edison Cavani on the transfer deadline day alongside 16-year-old Willy Kambwala from Sochaux, 18-year-old Amad Diallo Traore from Atlanta, and Uruguay winger Facundo Pellistri from Penarol.
