Manchester United will enter the new season with expectations of launching a bid for their first Premier League title since 2013, on the back of what is set to be a big spending summer.
The babble amongst United fans here in the booths of the Transfer Tavern changes every day, but whilst collecting empties today, the name Anderson Talisca seemed to be the name on everybody’s lips.
The Brazilian spent the last season on loan in Turkey with Champions Besiktas from Portuguese giants Benfica, with the forward smashing 16 goals for his adopted side.
Besiktas can activate a clause in the player’s two year loan deal to bring the 23-year-old in, but it is United who should swoop to secure the services of the talented attacker.
Talisca plays best as a central attacking midfielder, but can operate effectively on the flanks, giving Jose Mourinho’s men yet another option in the position.
Moving to United would provide Talisca with the opportunity to become a world class player, but fans around the Tavern have the right to be cautious of a move, as the remnants of a previous ‘prodigiously talented’ Brazilian Anderson still haunt the thoughts of our Red Devils patrons.
