The 27-year-old was left on the bench during Brazil's 2-0 victory over Uruguay in the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers but made a substitute appearance in the win over Venezuela a few days earlier.

An update from the Brazilian Football Confederation read:

"Alex Telles already had the disease, was asymptomatic and with a non-transmissible condition of the virus, but he could not travel to Uruguay.
"On the last exam, however, the defender's test came back negative and the defender was released for the game."

United are hopeful their new signing will be available for the clash against West Brom at Old Trafford on Saturday, November 21, 2020.

Telles' only match under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was during their Champions Legaue clash against Paris Saint-German at Parc des Princes back in October.
