Manchester United agree deal in principle for Alex Telles. They are close to signing former PSG striker Edinson Cavani on two-year deal.
Manchester United have agreed a deal in principle to sign Alex Telles for a fee believed to be £15.4million, with the Porto left-back flying to Manchester on Sunday night ahead of a medical with the club on Monday.
United felt their chances of agreeing a deal for the 27-year-old were fading after they had a £15.4million offer rejected by the Portuguese champions, who were holding out for £22.5million.
One source close to the deal described negotiations as “dead”, and United expected they would have to wait until January to hold talks with the player about a free transfer, with his present contract ending next summer.
However, negotiations began again on Sunday morning, with Porto changing their minds on United’s most recent bid – convinced that no subsequent offer was likely from Old Trafford given the transfer window closes for Premier League clubs at 11pm on Monday.
