Manchester United strengthened their attack in the winter transfer window by signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal. The Chilean international is a world class playmaker but he has not hit top form at Old Trafford as yet.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then a certain Brazilian attacker has agreed to sign for Manchester United.
The player in discussion is Anderson Talisca, who has played on loan for Besiktas (from Benfica) in the last two seasons.
Recently, Besiktas boss Senol Gunes confirmed that the 24-year-old star, who scored a goal and provided three assists for the Turkish side yesterday, will be leaving the club and he has already got a deal in place. Gunes further hinted that the Samba star is heading to the Premier League by stating that he might be rivals with Cenk Tousn, who plays for Everton (via Sporx and Goal.com).
Goal.com mentioned that perhaps Gunes hinted a move to Liverpool for Talisca, however, Turkish journalist Firat Gunayer claimed on his twitter account that the South American attacker has signed a preliminary deal with the Red Devils.
The Old Trafford club will have to agree a fee with Benfica to secure his signing. We researched for a release clause in Talisca’s contract and found that as per The Independent (reported last year), he has got a release clause of 20 million pounds (€23million).
Talisca can play in the central midfield as well but naturally, he plays in the No.10 role behind the center forward. In the recently concluded league campaign, he scored 14 goals and provided 7 assists in 31 starts for Besiktas.
