Man Utd target Alex Telles tells Porto fans he is not distracted by transfer talk after scoring twice against Braga

PORTO left-back Alex Telles has insisted he isn't distracted by transfer talk amid interest from Manchester United.

The 27-year-old – who has been at the club since 2016 – has been heavily linked with a switch to Old Trafford on a five-year deal.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are back in for the Brazilian defender having missed out on Sergio Reguillon to Tottenham.

A fee of around £18million has been rumoured to be the price Porto are willing to do business at.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has revealed that United have been in contact with Telles' agent, with the player to push to leave.

He tweeted on Saturday: "Manchester United priority: left back and right winger. Possible also a CB.

"Tonight #MUFC have been in contact again with Alex Telles agents. He will push to leave Porto on next few days. Man Utd are monitoring and considering an opening bid."

But Telles has insisted that he is only focusing on his future at Porto after scoring twice for the club in the 3-1 win against Braga.

The ex-Inter Milan loanee told Sport TV: "I’m a guy who focuses a lot on work, people believe what they want, say what they want in the newspapers, but the most important thing is to be focused on my work.

"You know that and so do my teammates, whatever happens, I’m focused on the club, I’m here, I’m playing."

Asked if he was close to leaving, he added: "I have people who work for me, I just have to focus on what my job is.

"If I knew anything, I wouldn’t need to have people working for me.

"I have people who take care of that and I have to focus on my work."
