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.

Besiktas have a £20million clause written into their loan deal with Benfica – but have shown no interest in triggering it this summer.

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.
