Man Utd transfer target Alex Telles 'to have medical tonight as Red Devils and Porto reach agreement on £18m move'
MANCHESTER UNITED target Alex Telles will reportedly have a medical tonight ahead of an £18million move from Porto.
Sky Sports reports a move to Old Trafford has been agreed for the left-back.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have fought off competition from neighbours Manchester City to sign the 27-year-old Brazilian.
Telles will provide competition for Luke Shaw and a deal looks set to be completed ahead of Monday's deadline.
Telles has just one year left on his Porto deal and could have walked away next year for free.

United previously had a bid of around £12m rejected by the Portuguese champs.
But reports suggest a deal has been struck after United upped their bid to match the £18m Porto were holding out for.
Solskjaer is believed to have pleaded with his board to find the cash to land his man.
And Ed Woodward and Co look to have come up trumps for their manager as United make inroads late in the market – with Edinson Cavani expected to also sign.
Personal terms were previously agreed with the player and agent Pini Zahavi.
Telles would join Donny van de Beek in arriving at Carrington during the summer window.
The Dutch midfielder arrived for £39m but the lack of further deals irritated fans – much to the frustration of boss Solskjaer.
It is no secret Jadon Sancho has been United's No1 target throughout the window but time is running out to secure a deal for the Borussia Dortmund ace before the window slams shut.
