Manchester United to raid Benfica for Brazilian?

Manchester United seriously look like they’re on the prowl this year for another huge summer in the transfer market. They have already signed the brilliant young defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica and reports in the British media over the last 24 hours have suggested that they may go back to the same club for another young star.

Manchester United eyeing second Benfica raid with move for Brazilian midfielder Anderson Talisca

The 23-year-old is a Brazilian player who has represented his country at under 20 and under 23 levels. He hasn’t yet kicked on to the full international side, with so much competition for places, but it looks like he has the potential to become a stalwart for Brazil in the coming years.

He’s a whopping 6’3″ and has top technique to go with his powerful frame. He scores goals and creates for others and can play in several different positions around the team. He went on loan to Besiktas over the last year where he played thirty three times and scored an excellent seventeen goals.

the season before that he scored nine goals in 32 games from the attacking midfield position but wasn’t deemed good enough for the first XI at Benfica and went out on loan. But he has really blossomed over the last year and looks as if he could walk into most teams in Europe. And he ticks all the boxes for a Premier League player too as he has skill to go with that power.

At 23 he could be a top long-term signing for Manchester United and TFF believes he could be a real bargain for the club. Let’s take a look at him in action.

Manchester United fans- is he good enough to make the grade Old Trafford?
