Manchester United are reportedly nearing a deal for Porto defender Alex Telles despite interest from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Manchester United are reportedly in a strong position to sign Porto defender Alex Telles.

A new left-back is thought to be on the agenda for the Red Devils during this summer's transfer window, and Real Madrid's Sergio Reguilon has been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Telles has been mentioned as a possible target for the 20-time English champions over the last few months, meanwhile, with the Brazil international impressing in Portugal last term.

The 27-year-old scored 13 times and provided 12 assists in 49 appearances at club level during the 2019-20 campaign, and a recent report claimed that his agent had travelled to England for talks with United.

According to A Bola, Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in Telles, but United are at the head of the queue for the defender, who is 'close' to leaving his current club.

The South American has a €40m (£37m) release clause in his current deal - due to expire next summer - but is allegedly available for €30m (£28m) in the current market.

Chelsea were also said to be interested before signing Ben Chilwell from Leicester City.
