Manchester United have found an agreement with Porto left-back Alex Telles, according to claims on Friday.
But it’s not all sorted yet, as Manchester United would still need to find a deal with the Portuguese club regarding a transfer fee.
Bouhafsi claims that Paris Saint Germain are also in the race for the 27-year-old, but are still thinking about whether they should make an effort for his signing or not.
Alex Telles is protected by a release clause of €40m. Since his contract with Porto expires next year, the Dragons are expected to give a discount and avoid losing him for free.
The Brazilian has changed agents this year, and has been working with Pini Zahavi to find new offers and leave Porto this summer. Since he has Italian citizenship, a work permit wouldn’t be a problem, even if moving for a small fee.
Regarding PSG interest, Friday’s edition of Le Parisien seemed to dismiss it at this stage. Whilst they explained there had been some effort for Telles earlier in the window, it was stated ‘this track has not been reactivated’ despite an injury to Juan Bernat.
The French newspaper made clear things could change, yet also made a point of saying PSG are not currently looking to sign a left-back, giving Layvin Kurzawa the chance to stake his claim.
