MANCHESTER United have shored up their defence after Sunday’s 6-1 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur with the signing of Alex Telles.

The club announced the arrival of the Brazilian full-back on Monday, the transfer deadline day.

“Manchester United is delighted to confirm the arrival of Alex Telles from FC Porto. The defender has signed a four-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year,” the club stated on their official website.

“Telles, 27, is a full international with Brazil and an experienced player across Europe, having played in the UEFA Champions League for many years.

“Over the past five seasons with FC Porto, he has scored 26 goals and registered more than 50 assists.

“He has won league titles in Portugal, and also in Turkey where he played for Galatasaray.”

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.”
