Posted by

Manchester United fans will not want to see this moment from target Alex Telles last night, the left-back missed a crucial penalty for Porto which led to them losing against Maritimo.

According to the Telegraph, United have effectively missed the deadline to sign the full-back after failing to meet Porto’s €20m demands, with Telles due to fly to Brazil for international duty today.

In the 87th minute of the tie, Porto had the chance to make it 2-2 after they were awarded a penalty, but some brilliant mind games saw keeper Amir Abedzadeh come out on top against Telles.

Abedzadeh was extremely confident as he teased Telles – who has a stellar record from the spot – with the stopper screaming at the Brazilian to ‘chip it’ down the middle.

It was a really devastating end to the encounter for Telles, with this moment essentially casting a shadow over the the ace’s brilliant assist earlier in the game.
