Manchester United close in on Brazilian ace, five-year deal agreed

Manchester United Premier League

Manchester United have been linked with a move for the Porto left-back Alex Telles.

The 27-year-old has been a star for them in the Portuguese League and he could prove to be a quality addition to the Manchester United defence this season.

The Premier League side have Luke Shaw as their starting left-back but the England defender needs more competition and signing Alex Telles would be a wise decision.

It will be interesting to see if Manchester United can agree on a fee with the Portuguese giants in the coming weeks now.

According to the latest reports, the Premier League giants have already agreed on personal terms with the Brazilian defender and Telles has agreed to sign a five-year contract with them.

The Porto star is superb going forward and he will add a new dimension to Manchester united’s attack this season.

The 27-year-old is at the peak of his career and he should be able to settle in quickly and make an immediate impact for Manchester United in the Premier League.

The Red Devils must improve their squad in order to challenge for the Premier League title this season and signing players like Alex Telles will certainly help them achieve their goals.

Porto are under no pressure to sell their star defender and it will be interesting to see if Manchester United agreed to pay the asking price for the Brazilian.

It is highly unlikely that Porto will sanction the sale for a knockdown price this summer.

That said, Manchester United have the resources to pull out the signing and it will be interesting to see how the situation unfolds in the coming weeks.
