Alex Telles has all but confirmed he is desperate to join Manchester United this summer - by liking Patrice Evra's latest post on Instagram.
The Porto man has emerged as United's top target at left-back after missing out on Sergio Reguilon, who has joined Tottenham Hotspur.
It is believed Telles is pleading with Porto to reduce their £18 million asking price as the Red Devils only value him at £12 million.
While a deal is yet to be agreed, fans think the 27-year-old's social media activity is proof he wants to move to Old Trafford.

Former United defender Evra has been vocal about the club's struggles over the last week and he shared an of himself with legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
Telles refused to play down transfer speculation last week and admitted he would stay focused "on his work."
"I'm a guy who focuses a lot on work, people believe what they want, say what they want in the newspapers, but the most important thing is to be focused on my work," he told Sport TV.
"You know that and so do my teammates, whatever happens, I'm focused on the club, I'm here, I'm playing."
Telles continued: "I have people who work for me, I just have to focus on what my job is.
"If I knew anything, I wouldn't need to have people working for me. I have people who take care of that and I have to focus on my work."
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has only added Donny van de Beek to his squad this summer and a 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday showed they are light in depth.
Starting left-back Luke Shaw told TV2: "We have a very good group, but personally I think we need more players to strengthen the squad.
"It can give us a boost. When you look around at how other teams are strengthening their teams, then we must also do it to keep up with the others."
Meanwhile, Solskjaer stated in midweek: "We're working with the ones we have [right now.]
"Let's see what happens. We'll give you updates if there is something."
