Man Utd buoyed as Porto lower asking price for Alex Telles

Porto have lowered their asking price for Manchester United target Alex Telles.

The Brazil left-back will become a free agent next summer after turning down an extension with Porto.

And the Portuguese club are now lowering their demands so as not to lose Telles for free next summer.

A Bola - via the Sun - reports Porto would accept just £18.5m for the 27-year-old.

That is £9.2m less than their original asking price of £27.7m.

The drop in price helps United as they are looking to spread their funds across multiple positions.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants a left-back, centre-back and winger to round out his squad ahead of their opening Premier League fixture next weekend.
