Manchester United have agreed a €20 million (£18.1m) deal to sign Alex Telles from Porto, according to reports.

United have been in talks with Porto for several weeks but had been unable to reach an agreement as the Portuguese club were demanding €25m (£22.6m).

But according to Record and Sky Sports Germany, both clubs have reached a compromise and the Brazilian left-back is now heading to Old Trafford.

The 27-year-old is due to undergo a medical with United on Sunday evening.

According to Record, Pini Zahavi has played a key role in brokering the deal after United had initially refused to increase their opening offer of €17m (£15.4m).
