United’s interest in signing a new left-back has been well-documented throughout the summer, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to provide Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams with more competition.

The Red Devils were heavily linked with a move for Real Madrid’s Sergio Reguilon but the Spaniard now seems to be on his way to Tottenham to reunite with his Los Blancos teammate Gareth Bale.

Telles was previously rated at £27million by Porto but with his contract set to expire in the summer of 2021, the Portuguese heavyweights are expected to consider more reasonable offers.

The 27-year-old will become United’s second marquee signing of the window following the arrival of Donny van de Beek from Ajax if a deal does materialise before the deadline. Telles has established himself as one of the best attacking full-backs in Europe over the course of his four-year stay at Porto.

The dynamic left-back has amassed an astonishing tally of 24 goals and 55 assists in 192 appearances for Porto in all competitions, winning two Primeira Liga titles. Telles also won the Turkish top-flight crown with Galatasaray earlier in his career.
