Manchester United are reportedly considering turning their attentions to the Portuguese Primeira Liga again and are interested in signing FC Porto left-back Alex Telles.

The Red Devils are reaping the rewards of buying Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon in January, with the £47m signing completely transforming the team since his arrival, scoring eight goals and creating seven assists in the Premier League to help United to a third place finish.

United have also raided Portugal on a number of occasions in the past, snapping up the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani from Sporting.

And according to Portuguese publication Correio da Manha 27-year-old Telles is now in their sights as they look to find cover in the full-back positions.

Alex Telles celebrates a goal for FC Porto

Telles, who has won one cap for Brazil, joined Porto from Galatasaray in 2016 and has been an important part of the first-team ever since, winning two league titles and making 192 appearances for his club in all competitions.

It is believed Porto would demand a fee of around £25m for Telles, which could be seen as relatively cheap considering the amount United may be spending on the likes of Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish.

His contract is due to expire at the end of next season, meaning Porto are open to the idea of selling him rather than losing him on a free in June.

Bruno Fernandes has been a sensation at Manchester United

United may face competition for Telles' signature, however, with the likes of Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain having also been linked with a move in the last few weeks.

Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams currently compete for the left-back spot at United, but both are prone to injury, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is thought to want another option there to add strength in depth to his squad.
