Both Manchester clubs, as well as Wolverhampton Wanderers, have been rumoured to be in the market for Alex Telles, and he would certainly be a welcomed addition to all interested parties.
With Manchester City and Wolves both currently 25/1 to sign the left-back, it seems a more likely destination is elsewhere. However, Pep Guardiola may be in the market for a backup to Benjamin Mendy, who’s City career has stalled in the past through long-term injuries. As for Wolves, the likelihood of them signing another Brazilian left-back seems minimal after Fernando Marcal’s arrival from Lyon.
That brings us to Old Trafford, where the only summer business that has been conducted was the arrival of Donny van de Beek from Ajax. Although an exciting addition to the squad, United fans will be hoping the club manage to secure at least one more signature before the window closes in October and Telles to United odds are currently priced at a low 1/8.
Developments over the past few days indicate Telles could be the next arrival at Old Trafford to give Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams some much-needed competition. Transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano, has stated the two clubs are talking about a possible move for the left-back, with personal terms not an issue, but more so the figure United are willing to pay.
Furthermore, The Guardian have reported a deal is close to being agreed and the odds of 1/8 now look like a worthy price.
