Alex Telles has left Manchester United to join Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr on a contract until 2025, the two clubs announced on Sunday.
The 30-year-old defender, who won the Europa League last season while on loan at Sevilla, will be reunited with former United team mate Cristiano Ronaldo at his new club.

Financial details were not disclosed although media reports suggested United would receive around £6 million ($7.71 million) for the deal.
“A new adventure beckons for @AT13Oficial. Thank you for everything and good luck, Alex,” United posted on Twitter.
Al Nassr released a photograph of Telles holding their yellow jersey and a video in which Ronaldo could be seen smiling in the background.

The Saudi Pro League has attracted many players since Ronaldo joined Al Nassr last December in a mega deal.
Al Nassr, who finished second in the league last season, were banned by FIFA earlier this month from registering new players due to outstanding debts.
According to reports, the outstanding debts were related to the transfer of Ahmed Musa, who moved to Al Nassr from Leicester City in 2018.
In a ruling in October 2021, FIFA said Al Nassr still had to pay a sum of €460,000 ($513,544) to Leicester for the signing of Musa, who played 62 games for the Saudi Arabian club in all competitions, scoring 14 goals, before leaving in 2020.
