Solskjaer had been eager to bolster his leaky defence and had been locked in negotiations with Porto over Telles' fee.
With just a year left on his contract in Portugal, United initially wanted to pay £12m for the player.
But Porto held out for £18m and it appears United have caved into their demands.
Solskjaer is believed to have pleaded with his board to find the cash to land his man.
Telles' attacking ability also attracted Solksjaer to make the move having scored 13 goals with 12 assists in 49 appearances last season.
Although he remains Porto's designated penalty taker.
United are expected to be busy before the 11pm transfer deadline and are closing in on a one-year move for Edinson Cavani.
The ex-PSG striker is a free agent after leaving the French giants at the end of last season.
