Man Utd transfer target Alex Telles’ asking price lowered to just £18.5m by Porto as Solskjaer eyes left-back

PORTO have reportedly lowered their asking price for Manchester United target Alex Telles to £18.5million.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to sign a new left-back before the transfer window closes.

Porto valued 27-year-old Telles at £27.7m earlier this summer.

But according to A Bola, the Portuguese side will now accept £9.2m less.

Reports claim the defender’s representatives have been to England for talks with United.

Porto are prepared to sell him in a cut-price deal to avoid losing him on a free when his contract expires next summer.

The report states that United are the “main interested party” but other teams are monitoring him.

Chelsea, Wolves and Paris Saint-Germain are among the teams that have previously been linked to him.

Solskjaer wants him to provide more competition for Luke Shaw at Old Trafford.

Telles was a stand-out performer last term as Porto won the Primeira Liga and Portuguese Cup double.

Despite playing in defence, he incredibly chipped in with 13 goals and 12 assists.

When quizzed about signing another player before the window closes, Solskjaer said: “We’re always looking to improve the squad, scouting players.

“If something fits, both the financial bit and the football bit, of course we’ll try to make some business.”
