Reports suggested the Brazilian had tested positive over the weekend while on international duty.

However, the Brazilian Football Confederation said the 27-year-old will travel with the squad on Tuesday after returning a second negative test.

United earlier said they would “make an assessment” when he returned.

In a statement released before Telles’ negative test was confirmed, the club said:

“It is still hoped he will be available to play in Saturday’s Premier League match against West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford.”

Telles joined United from Porto on a four-year contract in October, before testing positive for coronavirus later in the month.
