Manchester United agrees deal to sign Porto’s Alex Telles….

Manchester United are set to sign Brazil full-back Alex Telles after agreeing a deal with Porto.

United had been struggling to finalise terms with the Portuguese club but have now agreed a fee of 15m euros plus 2m euros in add-ons. Telles, 27, will have his medical on Monday before signing a four-year contract with option of a further year. Telles, who has won one cap for Brazil, has scored 21 goals in 127 games for Porto. United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to strengthen his options on the left side and feels Telles will be a useful addition. Porto previously wanted £18m for a player who has one year left on his contract and could be signed without a fee on a pre-contract in January. The news comes as United close in on a deal to sign Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani, who is a free agent after leaving Paris St-Germain.
