Man United lodge £35million bid for 24-year-old attacker from Brazil: report

Machester United and Jose Mourinho clearly aren’t messing around this summer. After sealing deals for both Diogo Dalot and Fred, another move could well be on the cards.

Reports from O Jogo in Portugal, translated by The Mirror, are claiming that a £35million bid for Anderson Talisca has been lodged. Although the Red Devils aren’t alone in the chase, with two unnamed Chinese Super League sides matching the offer.

The 24-year-old has spent the last two seasons on loan with Besiktas in Turkey. Last term, Talisca scored a mightily impressive 20 goals in 47 outings; and you can see why interest in the attacker is heightening.

In the modern-day Premier League, Talisca has all the attributes and qualities that should lead to success, but I’m just not sure where he’d fit into Jose Mourinho’s starting line-up.

Talisca primarily plays through the middle, be it as a #10 or the main striker. That’s not an area that United really need to strengthen in, and personally, I’d love to see the Old Trafford club go all-out for a world-class right-winger.

With that said, you never know what’s going to happen with Mourinho in charge, and if the self-proclaimed Special One likes him enough, then I wouldn’t be surprised to see this deal happen anyway; although it doesn’t make complete sense…
