The positive relationship that Inter holds with Manchester United in the transfer market could be a key factor in their pursuit of Alex Telles, according to a report in the Italian media.

As has been reported by Tuttsport, Inter could find themselves in a direct battle with former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho for the signature of Alex Telles as his new club, AS Roma, are also very interested in the Brazilian.

Inter have signed a number of Manchester United players in recent years with transfer negotiations seemingly going very calmly each time. The major deal was Romelu Lukaku’s €70 million move to Inter, but Ashley Young, Matteo Darmian and Alexis Sanchez have all recently made the same move.

As for Jose Mourinho, he was sacked by Manchester United in 2019 after a home defeat to Liverpool and reports from the time suggest that his relationship with many at the club was extremely rocky.
