How Porto Reacted To Manchester United’s Opening Bid For Alex Telles
The Red Devils have been heavily criticised over their business in the transfer window as Donny van de Beek remains their only major summer signing.
But Porto left-back Telles is on United's shopping list as the Premier League side hope to seal a deal before the transfer window shuts on Monday.
Portuguese newspaper O Jogo reports that United lodged a £12m bid for the 27-year-old Brazilian defender.
The Red Devils' reported offer didn't sit well with Porto as United didn't even hear back from the Portuguese club.
Porto are believed to be holding out for at least £18m for Telles, despite the Brazil international being out of contract next summer.
