Man United in contact with Porto over Alex Telles

Manchester United 'Agree Five-Year Contract' With FC Porto's Alex Telles

Manchester United 'Agree Five-Year Contract' With FC Porto's Alex Telles

It comes after Tottenham pipped them to the signing of Sergio Reguilon, who has joined Spurs from Real Madrid.

With less than a year left on his current deal at FC Porto, Telles is available for around €20m.

The 27-year-old Brazil worldwide is also understood to be attracting interest from Paris Saint-Germain following a long-term injury to their first-choice left-back Juan Bernat.

It appears Manchester United have made their move as Bouhafsi claims that a five-year contract has been agreed with Telles and the Red Devils are now trying to thrash out a fee with Porto.

Telles has emerged as a target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is looking to improve on his options at left-back.

A third Durham College student, who has not yet been on campus, has recently tested positive for COVID-19. Anyone who was in contact with the infected student will be notified by public health officials.

Telles has always been linked with a move to the Premier League and it is believed that personal terms will not be a problem although a fee is yet to be agreed with his club.

Telles has spent the last four seasons at Porto, making 192 appearances in all competitions.

The Porto star could be an exciting addition to Solskjaer's squad if he ends up moving to Old Trafford to become their second signing of the summer following the arrival of Donny van de Beek from Ajax.

This leaves PSG without an experienced left-back and could cause them to re-enter the fray for Telles, especially as FC Porto have now slashed their asking price to a bargain €20 million (£18.5m), first come, first served figure.

Manchester United are still focused on signing Jadon Sancho from Dortmund and their transfer funds are directed towards getting that deal done.
