Manchester United ‘agree personal terms’ with Benfica winger Anderson Talisca ahead of £20million move
Brazilian has admitted it would be a ‘dream’ to join Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford after brilliant loan spell at Besiktas.
MANCHESTER UNITED have agreed personal terms with Anderson Talisca, according to reports in Turkey.
The Benfica winger shone during a loan spell with Besiktas last season, scoring 17 goals in 33 games.
He is due to spend a second term in Istanbul as part of that agreement but United are understood to be keen to swoop in to seal a permanent deal.

Besiktas have a £20million clause written into their loan deal with Benfica – but have shown no interest in triggering it this summer.
And Turkish newspaper AMK claims that United will approach the Portuguese champions with a similar offer after encouraging talks with the player.
Jose Mourinho is a long-term admirer of Talisca, 23, and the Brazilian last week admitted he “dreams” of a move to Old Trafford.
Besiktas confirmed they are yet to hear of any bid for the playmaker, who is also being tracked by Liverpool.
Club official Metin Albayrak said: “Well every player dreams of playing in the Premier League or La Liga but Talisca has another year with us.
