Alex Telles has dropped a massive hint on social media that he will be joining Manchester United in a transfer from Porto.
The Brazilian full-back is reportedly getting close to an Old Trafford move as the two clubs negotiate a deal which could reach £25m.
With agent Jorge Mendes travelling to London for talks, the 27-year-old has not hidden his desire to make the transfer happen.
And Telles has now been showing appreciation for people with close connections to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
Patrice Evra, who won five Premier League titles and a Champions League at Old Trafford, shared a photo from his time at left-back as former boss Sir Alex Ferguson yells at him.
Accompanying the Instagram snap, he writes out a conversation which left the legendary manager fuming during a game.
But United’s potential new left-back like the United hero’s post, with screenshots of the moments being shared on Twitter.
And fans soon suggested the transfer was getting even closer, with one supporter saying: “We see you, Alex Telles.”
Another commented: “We know that he wants to join.”
While a third sent a direct message to Old Trafford, writing: “Just sign him.”
And a fourth simply added: “Confirmed.”
Telles would be competing with Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams for a place in United’s starting XI this season, which has won one and last one so far.
But the English defender has said the club would welcome more players in the squad.
“We have a very good group, but personally I think we need more players to strengthen the squad,” said Shaw. "It can give us a boost.
“When you look around at how other teams are strengthening their teams, then we must also do it to keep up with the others.
“The pre-season we’ve had together is not the way it should have been. We’ve had a week all together.
“We haven’t been able to prepare in the way we wanted and that’s not an excuse, because we have the quality of players to be able to win games like this, but we weren’t up to it.”
It comes as Solskjaer has made a big prediction about Telles.
