Porto president Pinto da Costa has claimed Alex Telles' main argument for wanting to move to Manchester United was to boost his chances of playing regularly for Brazil.

Telles joined United on transfer deadline day as the Reds moved to strengthen at left-back, with Ashley Young having left the club earlier in the year, and Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams in poor form.



With a year left on Telles' contract with Porto, Da Costa tried to keep hold of the Brazilian but was fighting a losing battle due to the player's desire to move to Old Trafford.



Telles has played three times for the Brazil, with two of those appearances coming since he secured his move to United on deadline day.

A week before closing the market, he asked to leave because he really wanted to go to Manchester United.

Da Costa argued with Telles that his international aspirations could be realised with Porto but the 27-year-old's mind was made up: "The argument for leaving was that the current coach of Brazil only called players from three or four championships.

I tried to contradict because he is currently in the national team."
