Manchester United are set to sign Alex Telles in a deal worth just over €15 million (£13.5m/$19m) after a breakthrough in their negotiations with Porto.
The two clubs have been in talks over the left-back for a while, but failing to reach an agreement over the fee with United’s first bid falling far below Porto’s asking price.
However, discussions had reached an advanced stage on Sunday and United were confident they could have a deal wrapped up for the full-back before Monday’s deadline.
The deal is worth €15m plus €2m in add-ons, with an agreement in principle for a four-year contract with an option for an additional year. Telles will fly in to Manchester on Monday to seal the deal.
It is believed the 27-year-old is wanted to bring competition to Luke Shaw at left-back while Brandon Williams, who has been deputising, is right footed and can provide back-up for Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back.
