Man United agree terms with Telles

With such impressive numbers behind him, it is actually something of a surprise that the full-back has not been snapped up by a club in one of Europe’s top-five leagues yet.

However, with the 27-year-old now in the final year of his contract, interest has begun to mount over recent months.

European powerhouses PSG and Chelsea had previously been linked with Telles.

However, in recent weeks, another potential suitor appears to have taken the lead in the race for Telles.

Said outfit comes in the form of Manchester United, who are believed to have intensified their pursuit of Telles earlier this month.

Now, as mentioned above, the Red Devils look to have been handed a boost in their hunt for Telles.

As per a recent report from Fabrizio Romano, Man United and Telles have found an agreement on personal terms.

United are still said to be in talks with Porto over a fee, but things do look to be moving in the right direction for Ole Gunner Solskjaer and co.
