Manchester United unwilling to pay up for Alex Telles

The summer transfer window of 2020 has been a mostly underwhelming one for Manchester United fans. Only saved by the signing of Donny Van de Beek from Ajax, Manchester United look set in a deadlock in pursuit of a new left-back to bolster their backline. 

According to the latest reports, Manchester United are unwilling to match the evaluation of Porto for their star left-back. The Portuguese club are demanding £18 million for Telles, but Manchester United are not willing to pay up.

Considering that they were going as far as offering €90 million for signing Jadon Sancho from Dortmund, everyone is aware that the club has no shortage of funds. 

However, the current scenario is quite surprising. United are instead countering Porto’s offer and suggesting a fee of £12 million.

Although nothing is surprising when it comes to Manchester United’s transfer tactics anymore, fans have been left quite angry with the situation. 

Especially given the fact that Manchester United had the chance to sign Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid, but instead passed up the opportunity to direct rivals Spurs.

Telles himself has been pushing Porto for a transfer as well, so it is established that the player wants to make the move. However, should United pull out of the transfer for a mere £6 million, fans would not be very understanding.

With Luke Shaw struggling to defend and establish himself as a dominant left-back, United have been forced to look for alternatives. Although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has another option in mind, Telles would be a brilliant addition. 

The transfer window ends soon, and if Manchester United do not manage to arrange a move for the Brazilian, they might have to face the wrath of thousands of angry fans, already ired by the board’s failure to lure Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford.
