Manchester United are in talks to sign Porto fullback Alex Telles.

A Bola says United want to sign Telles from Porto and have ‘intensified contacts’ to get a deal for the player done.

Sevilla are also in the mix to sign the 27-year-old, while Chelsea and Leicester have previously been linked.

But it’s claimed United are frontrunners in the race to sign the Brazil international, whose contract with Porto expires next summer.

Porto can’t ask for a huge fee as a result of this and it’s claimed they’ll receive less than the £22million Paris Saint-Germain recently contemplated paying.

And it’s said that Telles’ representatives are already in Manchester to thrash out an agreement that will see the Samba star move to the Theatre of Dreams.
