Man Utd agree Alex Telles transfer fee with Porto as left-back poised to join

Manchester United are finally poised to complete the signing of Alex Telles.

The Porto full-back is finally cleared to have a medical with United after a fee was agreed between the two clubs.

United will pay £18million for the 27-year-old, who will provide competition for Luke Shaw in the United squad.

Telles is expected to be looked at by medical staff on Sunday evening before an official announcement on Monday's Deadline Day.

A few minor details still have to be ironed out with the deal, but should be cleared in due course.

United have been locked in negotiations with Porto for over a week, with a handful of bids and proposals tuned away by the Portuguese club.

It is seen as a win-win deal for both sides; £18million being a cheap deal for a player of his quality, but Porto getting a reasonable chunk of money with just one year of his contract remaining.

Meanwhile, United's approach to the transfer window has been explained by club captain Harry Maguire.

He said: “We’ve brought in Donny [van de Beek], who’s an excellent signing, great player and a great guy to have around.

"I’m sure – he’s settled in brilliantly, but I’m sure he’ll improve.

“The window is still open and I know the club.

"I know how it works and they will be working tirelessly to try and strengthen our squad, without making any rash decisions.

“We focus on ourselves and we feel we have enough in our squad at the moment to go and get three points on Sunday [vs Spurs] and that’s all that matters."
