Manchester United had ended their last season on a winning note, with a triumph over Dutch Eredivisie side Ajax in the final of the Europa League. They are looking to build on that success in the next season as well, and are eyeing a number of players to be brought into the side in the summer.

The Red Devils have already made their intentions to build a strong team in the next season in order to challenge their opponents in the Premier League as well as the Champions League very clear by signing one of the most highly regarded centre backs in the world right now in the form of Victor Lindelof from the Portuguese side Benfica, who have lifted the Primeira Liga trophy in the last season.

Keeping their course unchanged, Manchester United are now trying to raid the Portuguese champions for their attacking midfielder Anderson Talisca, who has been in prolific form in the recently concluded season for his club Besiktas, where he was left on loan by Benfica. The 23-year-old might be the player the Red Devils are looking for to re-energise their midfield for the new season.

The Brazilian youngster has been one of the players to deliver a pivotal performance throughout the season for Besiktas, which was good enough to crown them as the Champions in the Turkish Super Lig last term. Anderson scored 16 goals in 31 appearances for the Turkish champions and has attracted a lot of attention from a number of big name clubs from all around Europe, including the likes of Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho, the current man in charge at Old Trafford, who led them to glory in the Europa League, has got his work cut out for the next season and is eyeing a number of significant transfer targets to revamp his team in the summer. While he is still awaiting the confirmation on the star striker Alvaro Morata and Belgian midfielder Radja Naiggolan to be brought into the club, speculations are rife that Anderson Talisca has agreed to the terms to join the Red Devils in the next season.

The brilliant Brazilian is known to make darting runs into the heart of the defence and is equipped with a dangerous ability to score goals from long range shots as well as close-range tap-ins. He has scored 20 goals in so far in 78 appearances for his club Benfica and has been running riot on the pitch with his brilliant footwork in the recently concluded Turkish Super Lig.
