RMC Sport journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi claims Alex Telles has agreed a 5-year contract with Manchester United.
His tweet suggests United will now work to agree on a fee with FC Porto, as that would be the next step in the negotiation process, but an Old Trafford source has downplayed the speculation to Stretty News.
There is no 5-year agreement with Telles.
That’s not to say the club are not in the process of making a move, as Stretty News writer Leah Smith claims Telles’ preference is to join United after PSG had an offer worth €15m turned down for his signature.
MUFC are in pole position to sign Telles.
PSG made a €15m offer for him a few months ago. Rejected.
Player's preference is to join MUFC!
Fee is expected to be around €25m (as I previously reported earlier in summer) – Porto are considering Wolves' Vinagre as replacement. pic.twitter.com/7ymnTSVedB

On top of that, FC Porto have seemingly already identified a replacement for Telles and will consider a move for Wolves’ Ruben Vinagre.
United have made just one signing so far this season with Donny van de Beek arriving from Ajax. The fans seek a lot more encouragement from the board, so you can only imagine what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is thinking.
Telles will offer more competition at left-back which can only be a good thing. Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams will get better for it.
