Manchester United are still in the chase for Porto left-back Alex Telles - and are reportedly confident a deal will soon be agreed.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have targeted Telles to solve a problem position, but Porto have slapped an £18million price tag on the Brazil international.

United feel this is too much for a 27-year-old in the final year of his contract, and have reportedly identified Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico as a potential alternative.

However, talks are ongoing between the Red Devils and Porto as the two clubs try to reach an agreement.

And United are confident a deal will still be struck as the clock ticks down to the October 5 transfer deadline.
