Manchester United have reportedly agreed deals with experienced Uruguayan striker Edison Cavani and Portuguese club, FC Porto to sign defender Alex Telles following the 6-1 demolition at the hands of Tottenham on Sunday.
Manchester United have spent weeks pursuing Telles, who is 27-year-old left-back meant to compete with with Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams at Old Trafford.
There was a stand-off between the Portuguese club’s valuation of the player and Manchester United’s valuation, but there has finally been a breakthrough in negotiations ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline, with United and Porto, agreeing on an £18million fee for Telles.
United will confirm the signin of Telles as well as former Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli striker Edinson Cavani on Monday October 5. Cavani, a free agent had a medical with United on Sunday after agreeing to sign a two-year contract.
Telles and Cavani will join Donny van de Beek among the Premier League giants’ major recruits this summer.
