Man United Trigger £22m Release Clause For Brazilian Playmaker



Anderson Talisca

Manchester United have triggered £22.6 million release clause of Benfica midfielder Anderson Talisca, according to reports.

The 23-year-old playmaker has been linked with an Old Trafford move this summer with reports that United boss Jose Mourinho is a keen admirer of the player’s abilities and will be interested in signing him.

Talisca is currently on a two-year loan with Turkish side Besiktas from Benfica and has done well to prove himself as a vital player for the side, with his impressive displays last season.

Reports in Fotorspor claim that Manchester United have agreed to trigger the release clause of Talisca in a deal that will see Besiktas coup about £3 million due to the interruption of the loan deal.

The Brazilian midfielder dazzled in the Europa League last season, with his impressive ball control, finishing and set-piece threats that saw him score 16 goals in 32 appearances across all competitions for Besiktas.

Mourinho is understood to be keen on adding a fourth player to his ranks this transfer window and has been tipped to move for several targets in different positions ahead of next season.

The imminent departure of Marouane Fellaini to Galatasaray might mean that United will have to sign a new midfielder to replace the Belgian ahead of next term.
