English Premier League outfit Man United are now in a last-minute rush to seal their summer transfer deals with just a few days to the closure.

The Red Devils have been struggling to seal the deal for FC Porto defender Alex Telles because of the £18 million fee slammed on the player. Man United now have an ultimatum to seal the deal or leave it.

The Telegraph reports that the Red Devils have been told by the Portuguese outfit to seal the deal for the defender or risk losing him as he would be made to stay at the club this season.

Alex Telles is about the third left-back the Red Devils have indicated an interest in since the start of the summer transfer window after losing Ben Chilwell and Sergio Reguilon to their Premier League rivals.

It is understood that Alex Telles seeks to join the Red Devils and have agreed on personal terms with the club but he will be helpless to remain with FC Porto if an agreement is not reached between both clubs.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has, however, expressed confidence that his team will be fine either they end up doing some summer transfer deals or not because he has enough players to challenge for titles.
