A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

Manchester United are zoning in on Benfica midfielder Anderson Talisca this summer. According to recent reports, the Red Devils are being tipped to sign the Brazilian talent during this upcoming summer transfer period. Besiktas manager Senol Gunes has revealed that the Turkish club are out of the running to sign the Brazilian international and a potential deal is already in place with an English club.

Talisca has spent the past two seasons on loan at Besiktas from Benfica. The midfield enforcer has put in a number of scintillating displays under Gunes during the course of last season which has not gone unnoticedSome sources are now claiming that Jose Mourinho’s United are on the verge of completing a deal for the 24-year-old in this summer transfer window.

According to journalist Gunayer, Talisca could be on his way to Old Trafford ahead of the new season. He posted a tweet recently which stated, “Talisca has signed a preliminary protocol with Manchester United.

“Benfica, however, has not yet agreed with the British.

“They are meeting with other clubs.”

In a recent interview, Besiktas manager Senol Gunes was quoted to have said, “Talisca was already gone at the winter break,” 

“I’m sorry that he won’t be with us any longer. I wish he could stay for his sake and ours. He already had a deal in place.”

The Turkish manager also went on to add, “He might be rivals with Cenk Tosun,”

The Red Devils missed out on the FA Cup last weekend when they suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea. Jose Mourinho’s side has had a trophyless season and will now look to bring in some quality players this summer so that they can challenge for major silverware in the upcoming campaign.

The potential acquisition of Talisca will undoubtedly bolster Mourinho’s attacking options at Old Trafford. United have a plethora of attacking talents such as Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Juan Mata competing for a starting berth in Mourinho’s starting XI. The addition of Talisca will improve their team significantly and add more competition for places within the Red Devils’ squad.

At 24, the Brazilian still has his peak years ahead of him which United could look to capitalise on in the coming years. Talisca featured in 47 matches for Besiktas last season, finding the back of the net 20 times while notching up with 8 assists across all competitions. He is also quite versatile and primarily operates in the number 10 position but can also be deployed as a secondary striker or in central midfield, which makes him a perfect fit for Mourinho’s Red Devils. It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of Talisca and whether he ends up making a switch to Old Trafford this summer.
