Manchester United target Alex Telles and Chelsea a new goal keeper

Telles to United this week?

Alex Telles is hopeful his move to Manchester United from Porto will get over the line this week, the Guardian reports. United have signed just Donny van de Beek so far this window, but left-back Telles could join him with talks said to be at an advanced stage. United are hoping to bring down the €25m asking price given he is into the final year of his contract, but should it go through the Brazilian is set to earn around £75,000 a week.

***: Left-back is just one of many concerns United have, and while Telles will help in that department it will do little to ease the concerns of supporters unless more names follow him through the door. The defeat to Crystal Palace highlighted their many shortcomings, one that may require more than just a few quick fixes.

Likewise Mendy to Chelsea

Another deal set to be confirmed is Edouard Mendy to Chelsea, with the Mail reporting the goalkeeper will have a medical in Berlin this week ahead of signing a five-year contract with the Blues. With Kepa Arrizabalaga under pressure, 28-year-old Mendy’s arrival for £22m will help provide the Spaniard some competition with Willy Caballero also set to feature in Wednesday’s League Cup match against Barnsley.

***: Some much-needed competition, although Caballero will perhaps be wondering what has warranted Kepa starting this season after he finished the last campaign in goal ahead of the world’s most expensive goalkeeper.

PSG lead City in Koulibaly race

Paris Saint-Germain have overtaken Manchester City in the race to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, the Telegraph reports. Agreeing a fee appears to be the biggest stumbling block regarding Koulibaly’s departure, with City so far baulking at Napoli’s asking price, but now PSG have emerged as the frontrunners to sign the 29-year-old centre-back for £75m. City have already added Nathan Ake to their defence, but are still in the market for another player.

Dele won’t go cheap

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy would prefer Dele Alli to leave on loan this season, the Mail reports. The Spurs midfielder has been frozen out by Jose Mourinho so far this season, with PSG and Inter both linked with the out-of-favour 24-year-old. Having valued Alli at £100m last summer, Levy knows that fee is far too much this time around, although he is unwilling to sell his player on the cheap.
