Manchester United target Alex Telles appears to have hinted he wants to join the Red Devils. United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on the lookout for defensive reinforcements before the transfer window closes on October 5.
It’s understood that Porto’s Telles is one of the players the Norwegian is contemplating bringing in to help alleviate his team’s defensive woes.
An official offer has yet to be tabled for the left-back but is expected to come in the coming days.
As is often the case when United are linked with a player, fans have been paying close attention to Telles’ social media.
And on Thursday evening, a certain Instagram like from the Brazilian set chins wagging amongst Red Devils supporters.

Telles sent fans into a frenzy by liking a post former United defender Patrice Evra, in which the Frenchman recalled a time Sir Alex Ferguson gave him a hairdryer on the touchline.
Some fans interpreted Telles’ like as proof he’s set to move to Old Trafford. Others, however, took it for what it merely was.
United have only made one signing so far this summer, bringing in Donny van de Beek from Ajax for a fee of £40million.
Solskjaer was quizzed about his plans for the remainder of the transfer window on Friday afternoon but refused to drawn on them.

“As I’ve said so many times, I’m very confident in my players and if and when something happens, with ins and outs, we’ll update you,” the Norwegian said.
“In football, you can’t predict too much, but for me we’re just working on getting better.
“My focus is solely on the game, I can’t be thinking any other way. Then we can talk again.
“We’re a week further down the line, it’s been a good week. Some players have been training well and the work has been good.
“We played well against Luton, we’re further down the line, like other teams, and we need to be further down the line, because last week was disappointing.
“We had a bad start last week, we want to kick on and play a better game.
“We played Brighton after the restart, we have good memories from that game, and hopefully we can show something like that.”
United will be back in action on Saturday afternoon, travelling to the Amex Stadium to take on Brighton.
