Manchester United and Porto ‘£6m apart in their valuations of left back Alex Telles’ but Premier League giants refusing to budge from £12m with defender now in final year of his deal

KISHAN VAGHELA: Sportsmail understands the Brazilian left-back is expected to be the next new player through the door at Old Trafford ahead of Monday’s deadline.

But The Telegraph are reporting that the two clubs have yet to agree a fee, with the Portuguese side demanding £18m for the 27-year-old’s signature – a price United do not wish to pay for someone who is in the final year of his contract.

Torino join Tottenham in race for Josh King as Serie A side eye £10m swoop for wantaway Bournemouth striker

BEN NAGLE: The Norway international is desperate to leave the Cherries following their relegation from the Premier League at the end of last season.

Tottenham were the front-runners for his signing, but now Torino have made an offer as they attempt to lure the striker away from England for the first time in his professional career.

Fulham ‘enter chase for £45m-rated Milan Skriniar as they target stunning club-record swoop for centre back’ in a bid to avoid embarrassing relegation

BEN NAGLE: A centre back is top of Fulham’s wishlist – which owner Tony Khan admitted in a series of tweets that have caused anger among Pakrer and his squad – as they bid to avoid instant relegation back to the second tier, and reports claim that they have now entered the race for Milan Skriniar.

If Fulham do manage to secure a deal upwards of £30m, it will smash through their all-time transfer record which currently stands at £27m for Jean Michael Seri ahead of their previous return to the top flight.

ICYMI: Manchester City announce £64m signing of Ruben Dias from Benfica on a six-year contract

JACK GAUGHAN: The 23-year-old is in line to make his debut over the coming week after undergoing a medical in Lisbon before signing a six-year contract. Nicolas Otamendi has moved to Benfica for £13.7m as part of the deal. 

Dias is a no-nonsense centre half, the sort of which that Pep Guardiola hopes will offer an additional presence to a back four that shipped five goals during Sunday’s capitulation against Leicester City.

ICYMI: Manchester United have NOT yet made a new bid for Jadon Sancho and fear losing face if another offer is rejected – with Ousmane Dembele emerging as an alternative but only on LOAN from Barcelona

CHRIS WHEELER AND ADRIAN KAJUMBA: Manchester United are believed to have held discussions with intermediaries on Tuesday and are still refusing to meet Dortmund’s demand for £108m for Sancho. They have denied reports of a £91million bid for the 20-year-old.

Having lost out to Tottenham in the race to sign Gareth Bale on loan from Real Madrid, Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele has emerged as a strong candidate as a viable alternative to Sancho.
