Manchester United allegedly remain convinced that they will sign Porto defender Alex Telles this summer.
The Premier League giants are favourites to win the race for the attack-minded left-back, who has less than a year remaining on his contract.
While United would have preferred to have already finalised a deal, Porto insist that they want to recoup at least £22.5m for the Brazilian.
Nevertheless, Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano claims that United officials are confident of eventually making the breakthrough in negotiations with their counterparts at the Portuguese side.
The 27-year-old has started each of Porto's two league matches this season, contributing two goals and one assist.
