Shirt Number Alex Telles Could Wear After Man Utd Transfer Revealed

While Manchester United fans wait for Alex Telles to complete his move to Old Trafford, many will be wondering what shirt number he could he wear.

At Porto, the Brazilian has been wearing the No 13 shirt, which is currently taken by goalkeeper Lee Grant at Old Trafford.

Given that Grant is far down the pecking order, it's possible the number could be reassigned to Telles.

However, there are other options available to the 27-year-old.

No 12

Chris Smalling is expected to return to Roma after a successful loan spell last season.

Telles also wore the number during his spell at Inter Milan.

No 15

The No 15 shirt will be free this season after Andreas Pereira completed a loan move to Lazio.

Telles also briefly donned the No 15 during his time with Galatasaray.

No 19

The No 19 shirt has been available since it was vacated by Marcus Rashford, who went on to claim the No 10 jersey.

Given that Telles would be expected to feature regularly in the United line-up, he could opt for this one rather than a higher number in the 20s or 30s.
