Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been desperate for a new left back to bolster his defensive options, and the United boss now looks to have got his man in Brazil international Telles. 

With 13 goals and 12 assists in all competitions last season, Telles’ attacking prowess makes him an attractive option for United.

The defender also helped his side keep 20 clean sheets in the Primeira Liga. 

Solskjaer has been frustrated in his attempts to strengthen his squad for the 2020-2021 campaign with Donny van de Beek the only new arrival at Old Trafford.  

But the Norwegian is finally set to see another player walk through the door with PSG striker Edinson Cavani having agreed a two-year deal with the club.

As Sportsmail revealed first, talks advanced quickly on Saturday and the Uruguay international striker will undergo a medical over the next 24 hours prior to signing a deal until 2022 on wages of around £210,000-a-week after tax. 

He is expected to be confirmed as a United player on Monday.

There could still be more new signings before the window shuts on Monday. Talks will continue for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho but the Bundesliga side are refusing to lower their £108m asking price.
