Manchester United are reportedly turning their attentions to Ajax left-back Nicolas Tagliafico after Portuguese club Porto continue to drive a hard bargain for Brazilian defender Alex Telles.
Telles, 27, has been hotly linked with a move to Old Trafford after it emerged from A Bola that United were eyeing a late summer swoop for the attacking full-back.
However, with a move seemingly no closer now than it was when it was first reported, journalist Tim Vickery has claimed that the Reds’ attentions are turning to Ajax left-back Tagliafico as per reports from AS Argentina.
United could very well draw upon their good relationship with Ajax CEO Edwin Van der Sar to help push a potential deal for Tagliafico over the line.
