One of the biggest problems with getting a deal done late in the transfer window can often come with a selling club looking to secure a replacement, but it finally looks like Man united will sign Alex Telles from Porto.
The Brazilian wing back has been linked for weeks now but a deal did look unlikely as the window drew to a close.
It’s since been reported that a deal has been agreed with Porto, so he should end up at Old Trafford as long as his medical goes okay:

Porto will need to bring someone in to replace the outgoing star, but it’s surprising to see that O Jogo are claiming that a deal has been agreed to bring Malang Sarr in on loan from Chelsea.
The Frenchman was only signed this summer and he tends to play as a left sided centre back, but he’s also very good on the ball and has played as a full back in the past.
Time will tell if Porto play him as a direct replacement for Telles or shuffle things round, but it looks like these two deals will go through very soon.
