Manchester United have confirmed the signing of full-back Alex Telles on a four-year deal with the option for a further year.

Telles was ready to fly to Brazil for international duty when the two sides came to an agreement on a fee.

United had been in talks with the Portuguese club over the full-back for a number of weeks but were apart on their valuation.

United’s initial bid was around £12 million as the defender was in the final year of his contract but, there was an agreement reached on Sunday and it is understood United have paid €15m (£13.5m/$19m) with an additional €2m in add ons.

Telles’ arrival is to bring competition to Luke Shaw at left-back and should also bring a different dimension to United’s attack. The 27-year-old scored 13 goals and assisted 12 in 49 appearances across all competitions last season.

Upon joining the Red Devils, Telles said: "To join a club with the prestige of Manchester United is a huge honour.

"You have to work hard to get to this moment in your career and now I am coming to this club, I can promise that I will give everything in my heart to be a success here. I won many trophies at FC Porto and I want to continue that at United.

"The manager has a clear plan and direction for this team and I can’t wait to pull on the famous shirt.”

United bossSolskjaer added: “First and foremost I welcome Alex to United. He is a player we have been tracking for some time and his performances over the past few years are exactly what we are looking for.

“He is a fighter and a winner and will add real determination and competition to the squad. Alex has the qualities, both as a player and as a person, that we want here at Manchester United.”
