English club Manchester United is in advance talks with Portuguese club FC Porto over the signing of their left-back Alex Telles.

United has already agreed on personal terms with Telles and also his agent's commission, but they are still yet to find an agreement with Porto as talks continue between the two clubs.

Porto is holding out on for a fee of €25m for their defender while Manchester United are hoping to get the defender for a fee of around €17m.

Ole Gunner Solsjkaer is looking for a backup left-back for Luke Shaw who is always prone to injuries. The club already has a good left-back in Brandon Williams, but the manager feels that Williams is still young and needs time to learn.

Alex Telles will give Ole Gunner's squad another dimension with his good skills and strikes

Telles 27, also has a good defensive ability and can score goals from a long-range. His move to Manchester United will help the Manager in getting more goals from defenders.

Alex Telles joined Porto from Turkish club Galatasaray on 12 July 2016 for a fee of €6.5m. He made 193 appearances for the club in all competitions and scored 26 goals.
