Portuguese giants, Porto are reportedly prepared to consider offers for Brazilian defender Alex Telles which are below the player’s release clause.
Although the 27-year-old star has been a vital player at the Portuguese giants, the Brazilian will depart in the current transfer window due to his deal expiring in 2021.
While Telles has a release clause in the region of £35m, it appears that Portuguese champions are willing to part ways with the 27-year-old for much less than that figure.
According to A Bola, Porto are now happy to accept an offer of just £18m, a development which will alert the teams in the English top-tier.
Premier League giants, Manchester United have been strongly linked with the player, while Wolves could also attempt to negotiate a deal for the attack-minded defender.
Further discussions regarding Telles’s future at the club are expected to take place over the coming days and he seems to be destined to make a switch to the English top-tier.
Manchester United only reliable left-back has been Luke Shaw and adding top-class player like Alex Telles could help them to improve their defensive end and compete for all possible trophies.
