Monday's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup: Alex Telles, Jesse Lingard, Sergio Reguilon

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Monday, September 21.

The summer transfer window has now begun, with rumours and speculation continuing to swirl as Manchester United eye possible reinforcements.

The Red Devils brought in Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo in the final days of the winter window but are still expected to be active in the summer as they aim to restore their former glories.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Old Trafford.

Monday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:

Porto boss Sergio Conceicao admits Manchester United target Alex Telles could leave

Porto boss Sergio Conceicao has suggested that Alex Telles could leave the Portuguese club before this summer's transfer window closes for business.

Manchester United have been strongly linked with a move for the Brazilian, and a recent report claimed that the English giants had already agreed personal terms with the left-back.

Telles scored twice in Porto's 3-1 win over Braga in the league on Saturday, but Conceicao has admitted that the 27-year-old could be on his way out of the club amid the recent speculation.

"I don't think about it," Conceicao told reporters when asked about a possible exit for Telles. "The market is not about me. I am not a manager, I am a coach and I have to train the players I have. Obviously I would like to count on everyone and if someone else came in, I would not be upset at all.

"I must praise and emphasise Alex's professionalism. It is not easy with all this news to play the game he played today. I know the character and personality of the players and I know that until the last day, be it tomorrow or 10 years from now, they will do their best."

Telles, who has also been linked with Paris Saint-Germain, scored 13 times and registered 12 assists in 49 appearances for Porto during the 2019-20 campaign.

Tottenham Hotspur willing to pay £30m for Jesse Lingard?

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly contemplating a big-money bid to sign Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard.

With Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale having joined from Real Madrid on Saturday, it was believed that Spurs may not make any further additions before the end of the summer transfer window.

However, according to the Daily Star, manager Jose Mourinho is open to a reunion with Lingard, whom he worked with during his time at Old Trafford.

As a result of the England international falling down the pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United have no intention of extending the 27-year-old's contract past 2021.

Despite being able to sign Lingard on a free transfer in July, Spurs are allegedly contemplating whether to spend £30m on the player in the coming weeks.

Lingard did not feature in United's 18-man squad as they succumbed to a 3-1 defeat against Crystal Palace on Saturday evening.
