Alex Telles Brazil

Manchester United are linked with a number of left backs and the latest name in the lime light is that of Alex Telles.

The 27-year-old Brazilian international will be out of contract next year and as per A Bola, Porto are looking to get a fee of €30million (£26.8million) from his sale.

Transfer: Man United backed to agree signing of £350,000-a-week Sancho alternative

The Portuguese outlet have mentioned that several clubs have shown interest in signing the Samba star from the Liga Nos champions. PSG are not interested in meeting the asking price, Sevilla are in pursuit but above all, Man Utd have seriously moved in and made contact to get his signing done.

Telles has proved his worth over the years with the Primeira Liga giants and last season, he was absolutely fantastic in the title winning campaign.

He has got a peach of a left foot and is renowned for taking brilliant set pieces. In all competitions, the Samba star featured in 49 games and directly contributed in no fewer than 25 goals (13 goals and 12 assists) for Porto. Such productivity in the attack from a defender is absolutely incredible.

The Selecao defender scored 11 goals in the league, only one fewer than Porto’s top scorer Moussa Marega.

At Old Trafford, United’s first choice (injury prone) left back Luke Shaw has so far played 139 games for the club and directly contributed in just 13 goals (Transfermarkt).

If United are to seriously challenge for the title next season then they need to have creative fullbacks. Last term, Liverpool won the Premier League and their fullbacks (Alexander-Arnold and Robertson) directly contributed in 31 goals.

The Red Devils are also linked with another €30million rated left back in the form of Sergio Reguilon (AS), who was in top form on loan for Sevilla last term. In your view, who should Solskjaer sign to reinforce the position in the summer transfer window?
