Can you help me
Thanks in advance

The "highlight border" is the anti-aliasing pixels, that have an intermediate color between the subject and the background. To obtain a proper cut:
- select the background with the magic wand
- "Select/Grow" the selection by two pixels
- Use "Colors/Color to alpha" and the the background color as the color to remove

This will remove the background, and make the antilaliasing pixels partially transparent.

To put another color in the background:

- add a new layer
- move it under your subject
- bucket-fill with the required color

The partially transparent border pixels obtained above will create the proper color blend for a smooth border.
