Jose Mourinho has revealed that he has made the signing of a midfielder his top priority for the upcoming season and this has seen the club heavily linked with the signing of a plethora of World class midfielders.
Brazilian attacking midfielder Anderson Talisca has thrown fans of the Red Devils into a frenzy after he followed Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford on instagram, leaving the impression that a deal with Man United may be on the offing.
United midfielder Michael Carrick has hung his boots and the future of Marouane Felliani remains uncertain, this has left United with no choice than to look for midfield reinforcements and they have registered their interest in Talisca.
This week, Turkish journalist Firat Gunaye claimed that the player had signed a pre-contract agreement with United but he further claimed that Benfica are yet to sanction his sale, even though they are resigned to selling him.
Turkish journalist Firat Gunayer:
“(Anderson) Talisca has signed a preliminary protocol with Manchester United,”
“Benfica, however, has not yet agreed with the British. Besiktas also take 21 and sell to other clubs.”

“Talisca has signed a preliminary protocol with Manchester United,” Benfica, however, has not yet agreed with the British club.”
The midfielder also followed players from other clubs on Instagram but a huge section of United fan base have concluded that he will join the Red Devils for next season.
Talisca has followed Jesse Lingard on Instagram. Why would you do that unless you had to😂 Definitely coming to United

So apparently Anderson Talisca is coming to United. Won’t lie, I’ve never seen him play so I can’t say if it’s a bad signing or not. All I know is that he’s 6’3, so I can see why Mourinho wants him lmao..
