Man Utd are getting closer to sealing a deal for Porto left-back Alex Telles this summer with talks progressing, according to reports.

The Brazilian left-back scored an incredible 11 goals in 31 appearances for Porto in the Portuguese top flight last campaign, while he also contributed eight assists.

The 27-year-old started this season with a bang too, bagging two goals and an assist as Porto beat Braga 3-1 on Saturday.

Telles has entered the final year of his contract at the Portuguese club and could be set to leave this summer as Porto wouldn’t receive a fee in the summer.

There were reports earlier this month that Telles’ representatives had travelled to Manchester in an effort to tie up a transfer to Man Utd as soon as possible.

And now A Bola (via Sport Witness) claims on Monday that there has been ‘concrete progress’ in recent hours over a deal for Telles, with his agent Pini Zahavi trying to get Man Utd to pay €20m.

The Red Devils have offered Telles €4m a year, which is almost four times what he gets paid now and ‘everything really suggests’ that a move to Man Utd is imminent.

Sport Witness also bring us an update from O Jogo, who claim that Diogo Dalot being used as part of the deal is ‘not on the table’.
