Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for the Premier League on Thursday, September 24.

Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Thursday, September 24.

Thursday morning's Premier League transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United 'will have to pay £25m for Alex Telles'

Manchester United will reportedly have to come up with an offer of €27m (£25m) in order to sign Porto defender Alex Telles before the end of this summer's transfer window.

The Red Devils continue to be linked with a move for the Brazil international, and Porto boss Sergio Conceicao recently conceded that the left-back could leave the club before the deadline.

United are said to be reluctant to pay over the odds for Telles considering that the 27-year-old's existing contract in Portugal is due to expire next summer.

However, according to Correio da Manha, the 20-time English champions will need to make an offer of €27m (£25m) in order for Porto to sanction a sale.

The report claims that both the defender's agent Pini Zahavi and Jorge Mendes, who is involved in the deal as an intermediary, will share 15% of any deal.

Meanwhile, it is alleged that Telles's former club Galatasaray are entitled to 10% of a transfer fee, meaning that Porto are facing missing out on a quarter of what United pay if the deal goes through.

The South American has reportedly already agreed terms on a five-year contract at Old Trafford.

Manchester United 'considering late move for Samuel Umtiti'

Manchester United could reportedly move for Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti in the final stages of this summer's transfer window.

Chris Smalling is expected to leave the Red Devils before the October 5 deadline, while Marcos Rojo could also move on, which would leave the 20-time English champions short of experienced options at the back.

A new central defender could therefore arrive at Old Trafford in the coming weeks, and according to France Football, United are weighing up an approach for Umtiti.

The France international has a contract at Camp Nou until the summer of 2023 but could allegedly be allowed to leave for free as the Catalan giants attempt to reduce their wage bill.

The 2018 World Cup winner has made 116 appearances for Barca in all competitions, but a number of injury problems restricted him to just 13 La Liga outings in 2019-20.

Umtiti has not played for his current club since the end of June due to a knee issue.
