As per reports going on in the media, Manchester United are getting closer and closer to hiring the services of Alex Telles. The entire worth of the signing could be £45.8million.
According to The Star, Man Utd are close to securing a cut-price deal to sign the Brazilian international for a fee of £25million.
The renowned British source have stated that the Red Devils are willing to agree a contract that will make the player earn £80,000-a-week.
RMC Sport‘s Mohamed Bouhafsi has already confirmed that the player has agreed a five year deal with the Old Trafford outfit, therefore, the entire worth of the contract could be £20.8million.
Telles has won every major domestic prize with the Primeira Liga giants, who have not been able to agree a new contract with the South American left back.
He will be out of contract in less than 10 months and is looking for a new adventure.
The Star claim that the 27-year-old star is eager to sign for Man Utd and has told the Liga Nos side that he wants to leave in the summer transfer window.
Despite being a defender, Telles was Porto’s second highest goal scorer in the last league campaign. He found the net 11 times, only one less than top scorer Moussa Marega, in the title winning season.
In the opening league fixture vs Braga this term, the former Galatasaray fullback scored two goals and provided an assist to be the Man of the Match against Braga.
Our first choice left back, Luke Shaw, has never been consistent at Old Trafford and he was terrible in the opening Premier League game vs Palace. After 6 years, I think it is time we hire a new and consistent left back and Alex Telles would be a quality addition.
