Porto drop asking price of Man United-linked Alex Telles

FC Porto have slashed the asking price of left-back Alex Telles amid fears of losing him for nothing, A BOLA reports.

The Brazilian international is out of contract next June and has been expected to leave Porto this summer.

Paris Saint-Germain were heavily linked with Telles, 27, but ended their interest in June.

In the last week, Manchester United have reportedly become an option for the full-back.

United are in the market for a new left-back, with Real Madrid’s Sergio Reguilon also on their radar.

Porto had been requesting €30m for Telles, but according to A BOLA are now open to selling him for €20m.

That is half of Telles’ €40m release clause, an amount Porto can no longer demand due to his contract situation.

Pini Zahavi, the player’s agent, will meet with Porto in the next few days for transfer talks.

Manchester United are named as the ‘main interested party’, but there are other clubs keen on Telles.
