Manchester United have finally agreed an £18million deal with Porto for full back Alex Telles with the 27-year-old due to have a medical later today. 

Telles looks set to join the Red Devils as does free agent Edinson Cavani, who is also having his medical on Sunday night. 

United are also looking to sign another Uruguayan, 18-year-old Penarol winger Facundo Pellestri, and he will have his medical check on Monday.

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 and the defender also helped his side keep 20 clean sheets in the Primeira Liga in the 2019-20 campaign.

Solskjaer has been frustrated in his attempts to strengthen his squad for the new 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, in addition to ex-PSG striker Edinson Cavani who has agreed a two-year deal with the club.

As Sportsmail revealed first, talks advanced quickly on Saturday and the Uruguay international 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.

Meanwhile, Pellistri will finalise a £10million move from Penarol, who made his professional debut for Penarol in August 2019 at the age of 17 after impressing manager Diego Forlan and he scored his first goal three months later.

Forlan, who played for United between 2002 and 2004, recommended him to his former club and the Red Devils have fought off strong competition from Real Madrid, Juventus and Atletico Madrid, Manchester City, Lyon and Boca Juniors. 

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.

CRISTIANO RONALDO and Georgina Rodriguez have shown off their love in a video of a wedding-style party with their close pals.

And last month, the pair threw a lavish party, seemingly in celebration of their impending nuptials.

Ronaldo and his partner invited around 20 of their closest pals for the bash.

The group laughed and joked around one, long table as musicians performed in the background.

They drank and danced into the night on a sea of rose petals, with Ronaldo sipping from a wine glass.

He shared the four-minute video to his social media accounts.

The Portugal ace captioned the clip: “Life is better with the person you love.

“Enjoy every moment with love and happiness, Georgina.”

Georgina also shared the video to her followers, writing: “I will never stop falling in love with you, Cristiano.”

Ronaldo and Georgina seemingly hired a videographer for the bash.

And they captured some incredible candid moments, with Ronaldo in stitches around the dinner table at one point.

The happy couple were seen smiling throughout as they enjoyed the end of a long summer, in which they travelled around the Med on their yacht.

However, the pair have since been forced to live in separate parts of their incredible home.

Ronaldo has now returned THREE positive tests for coronavirus, with the Juventus star self-isolating.

But the latest test has confirmed he will miss his side’s Champions League clash with Barcelona – and the chance to go up against old rival Lionel Messi.
