Manchester United 'to announce Alex Telles signing on Monday'

Manchester United will complete a move for Porto defender Alex Telles on Monday, according to a report.

Manchester United will reportedly complete a move for Porto defender Alex Telles on Monday.

The Red Devils have been strongly linked with the Brazil international over the last few weeks, but it had been claimed that they faced missing out on a deal due to Porto's asking price for the left-back.

However, there has been movement on the deal over the last 24 hours, and according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, United will announce the South American's capture on Monday.

Romano claims that the 27-year-old is now in Manchester and ready to put pen to paper on a five-year contract with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, who are also nearing a deal for experienced striker Edinson Cavani.

A disappointing start to the 2020-21 Premier League season has seen the Red Devils pick up just three points from their three matches, and they suffered a 6-1 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Telles will arrive in England having scored 26 times and registered 57 assists in 195 outings for Dragoes.
