The Brazilian midfielder has been in sensational form for Turkish side Besiktas this season, where he is spending the campaign on-loan from Benfica, by scoring 20 goals and adding eight assists.
With Jose Mourinho and United seemingly in desperate need of a creative spark in the middle of the pitch, 24-year-old Talisca could well fit the bill, with the Manchester Evening News claiming the Special One is ready to sanction a multi-million pound bid.
He’s been linked with a move to United previously, but it seems there might actually be something to the rumours this time, if his social media activity is anything to go by:

Perhaps he’s just a fan of United’s players – who knows?
But an elite footballer like Talisca knows fine well how this will be received by fans and tabloids in England.
Do you think he’d fit the bill as a United player?
