PSG are keen on the Porto defender as well and it will be interesting to see if United can fend off the competition and secure the 27-year-old’s services.
They need to add more quality and depth to their full-back positions and Telles has proven his quality in Europe with Porto. He has the talent to make the step up to the Premier League and succeed with Manchester United.
The Red Devils certainly have the resources to pull off the signing and it remains to be seen how the situation unfolds in the coming weeks.
Telles will add more competition for the left-back starting berth and it could help the likes of Shaw to improve and perform better.
Manchester United will be hoping to challenge for the title this year and some extra competition and quality in their squad could do them a world of good.
