If one news source has its facts correct.
According to The Mirror, the Old Trafford hierarchy has agreed on terms with the Porto full-back, Alex Telles.
Telles, a 27-year-old international defender, has, as our referenced source is championing, agreed to terms for a five-year deal and his arrival could be imminent.
However, before we all do a mini jig of delight, I feel obliged to also announce that another source, this time from Portugal, Ojogo.pt, implies that Manchester United have serious competition for the player with Paris Saint-Germain having stepped up their interest to sign the defender.
I have my fingers crossed in the hope that Manchester United can get this deal across the line as Telles would bring that little something extra to our starting eleven.
But that is only my opinion, please feel free to share yours in the comment facility beneath this article.
