Benfica playmaker Anderson Talisca has claimed that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho wants him at Old Trafford, and he indicated he would be open to the move. 

The 23-year-old Brazilian excelled in 2016-17 on loan in Turkey at title-winning Besiktas, and when he was quizzed about links to United he said, per Brazilian outlet Globo Esporte (via Turkish-Football.com's Emre Sarigul):

"That is a question I cannot give an answer to just yet. I cannot deny there is interest but what happens next depends on Benfica and my representatives. There will be news on this soon. Look every player dreams of playing under him [Mourinho]. Mourinho wants me, he has wanted me for a long time and I am an admirer of his work. I had a good season so we will see what happens."
