According to the Guardian, Teles believes that Porto’s 20 million euros (18.3 million pounds) transfer fee proposed to Manchester United is unrealistic. The Brazilian defender knows that he will become a free agent next summer.
Although Teles still hopes to complete the transfer to Manchester United this week, he is also preparing for the transfer negotiations to continue until October 5.
The Guardian said that Manchester United's position is very similar to Teles, and they think the price of 12 million pounds will be more reasonable. Manchester United and the players’ camp recognizes that Porto needs to sell Teles to obtain funds, which may force them to lower their asking prices.
Solskjaer wants to sign Teles to provide competition for Luke Shaw and Williams, and he wants the full back to provide a greater offensive threat. Telis scored 11 goals in the Portuguese Super League last season and also sent out 8 assists.
