Home All The News Man Utd bid ‘does not seduce’ Porto in ‘test of nerves’

Porto will hold out to get their asking price for Alex Telles after Man Utd lodged a €15m bid for the left-back, according to reports in Portugal.

The Brazilian left-back scored an incredible 11 goals in 31 appearances for Porto in the Portuguese top flight last campaign, while he also contributed eight assists.

The 27-year-old started this season with a bang too, bagging two goals and an assist as Porto beat Braga 3-1 in their first match last weekend and was part of the team that won 5-0 at Boavista on Saturday.

Telles has been consistently linked with the Red Devils in recent weeks, with A Bola claiming ‘concrete progress’ over a deal just a week ago, while they ruled out the possibility of Diogo Dalot joining Porto as part of the deal.

And there’s an update in the Portuguese newspapers on Monday, with A Bola (via Sport Witness) now claiming that Man Utd have been ‘challenged’ to increase their bid for Telles.

Their current €15m offer ‘does not seduce’ Porto as they put on their ‘poker face’ looking for a fee closer to €20m.

The newspaper calls it a ‘test of nerves’ for all parties with a ‘patience game’ under way with fellow Portuguese publication Record saying that there is very little to report on Telles’ current situation at Porto.
