Reliable transfer journalist claims that Manchester United have held talks with Alex Telles’ agents. Romano also understands that Telles is pushing for a move to Old Trafford and the club will launch an opening bid very soon.
Earlier this week, it was reported that Porto have lowered their asking price for Telles. Porto’s demands now stand at £18.5m. It is because Telles’ contract expire next season and Porto do not want him to depart the club on a free transfer.
United face competition from PSG to sign Telles.
United need a left-back to challenge for trophies again. Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams are not reliable and good enough.
United missed out earlier on Ben Chilwell and Sergio Reguilon. Telles’ price tag is reasonable. He scored 13 goals and assisted 12 last season [source: Transfermarkt]. His attacking skillset fits into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans like a glove.
Another surprise left-back alternative is Rayan Ait Nouri. His agent, Jorge Mendes is pushing for a move to the Theatre of Dreams.
