Manchester United could attempt to sign Porto defender Alex Telles this summer, according to a report.

Manchester United could reportedly attempt to bring Porto defender Alex Telles to Old Trafford during this summer's transfer window.

The 27-year-old has been in excellent form for his Portuguese club during the 2019-20 campaign, scoring 13 times and providing 12 assists in 47 appearances in all competitions.

Manchester City and Chelsea have recently been linked with the Brazil international, but according to Record, United are also in the running for the full-back.

The report claims that 'everything indicates' that Telles will be on the move this summer, and the 20-time English champions have a 'special interest' in the South American.

The defender could allegedly be available for as little as €25m (£22.8m) as his contract at the Estadio do Dragao is due to expire in June 2021.

Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams have shared the left-back spot at United this season.
