Man Utd offered Porto star Alex Telles with star on ‘relatively cheap wages’

Manchester United have reportedly been offered the chance to sign Porto star Alex Telles this summer.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is after a new full-back and been linked with a move for Real Madrid star Sergio Reguilon.

But the Red Devils are keeping their options open and have reportedly been offered Telles, who has just this season left on his Porto contract.

Telles was a stand-out performer last term as Porto clinched a Primeira Liga and Portuguese Cup double and scored 13 goals as well as laying on 12 assists in all competitions.

And transfer expert Duncan Castles has explained that Porto have offered the 27-year-old to United.

Castles told the Transfer Window Podcast: "[United] have been looking for a left-sided, left-footed centre-back and a left-back, or a full-back of some type, preferably a left-footed left-back.

"I can tell you that they've been offered the Porto left-back Alex Telles.

"Twenty-seven years old, relatively cheap wages, €2m [£1.8m] gross but out of contract in June 2021.

"Porto, I'm told, want €25m [£22.7m] for the player who has been offered to Paris Saint-Germain, that deal hasn't been able to be concluded.

"The agent involved is Pini Zahavi, who does quite a lot of business out of Portugal and actually was involved in some stage in Neymar's deal [to PSG in 2017]."

The report that Telles would be on “relatively cheap wages” could be a blessing to Solskjaer.

“We all know this summer and this year has been a very strange one and it’s important that everyone understands that this has an effect on football and not everyone can spend millions and millions, and new millions.”
