One thing makes Jose Mourinho standout from some of the top coaches of the Premier League and that is his ability to sign on any of his transfer targets..
Although Man United qualified for the Champions League and won three trophies, the struggles of the squad was apparent and the need for Mourinho to bolster his squad is one that cannot be argued.
United completed the signing of Swede left back Victor Lindelof and the Special One is yet unrelenting as the Club is on the verge of completing a deal for the second summer signing. According to Manchestereveningnews, Anderson Talisca has agreed personal terms to join Man United.
Talisca, 23, is currently on loan with Portuguese side Besiktas, where he impressed last season in the attacking midfield role – he made 22 appearances in the Super Lig and he scored 13 goals and provided two assists. Liverpool are understood to also be interested in the player.
He has been on the Man United transfer wishlist but Mourinho seem to have confirmed his admiration for the player by convincing him to agree personal terms. This is a huge step in the right direction.
United had the second best defense in the Premier League last season but the lack of creativity from the midfielders turned out their undoing. Talisca can play behind the striker or on the flanks – he would provide the final pass for the striker of United but he is also a clinical midfielder.
Talisca has a £22m release clause in his contract.
