It has been reported that the Brazilian has agreed personal terms with the club, although United have not yet managed to negotiate a fee with Porto, who are currently holding out for around £18.3m.
It seems clear that Telles is keen on the move, however, judging by his activity on social media.
Former United defender Patrice Evra took to Instagram on Thursday to post a picture of himself with his ex-manager Ferguson, recounting a story in which the Scottish manager's criticism of him led to him finishing a game as Man of the Match.
The post was 'liked' by Telles, and his activity did not go unnoticed by supporters of United.
