Manchester united defender Alex Telles has reportedly tested positive for Coronavirus for the second time while on International duty with Brazil.

Manchester United left-back, Alex Telles has tested positive for coronavirus for a second time while on International duty for Brazil.

The 27-year-old Brazilian defender had first tested positive for Covid-19 at the end of October, which forced him to miss four games for United as a result. Telles, who joined up with Brazil’s squad for the international break came off the bench in his nation’s 1-0 victory over Venezuela on Friday evening.

The Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) confirmed in a statement on their website that Telles “tested positive” and that Guilherme Arana has been brought into the squad after Telles tested positive for Covid-19 on Saturday.

Telles will be tested again, and if he returns a positive result, he will be removed from Brazil’s squad as he would not be allowed to travel to Uruguay.

A CBF statement said: “Arana was called on to form the Brazilian squad after left-back Alex Telles tested positive for Covid-19.

The player had contracted the virus while still in his club, Manchester United, and is no longer in a transmissive stage.””

A new examination will be carried out with the entire delegation on Sunday (November 15). If the test result is again positive, Alex Telles will be recalled [to Manchester United].”
