Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is keen on wrapping up another summer signing as the club have declared a concrete interest for their long-term target Benifica midfielder Anderson Talisca in the form of a formal bid of £35m.

There are also two unnamed Chinese Super League clubs who have made the same bid to have Talisca and they’re even willing to triple or double the offer if that’s what it takes to have him, according to O Jogo via Dailystar.

Talisca who has spent the last two seasons on loan at Besiktas of Turkey, scored 37 goals in 80 appearances. Benfica seems to want to offload the 24-year-old permanently this summer.

His agent has reportedly been Lisbon for the last few days seeking to finalise a decision over his client’s future. Besiktas have until June 31 to submit a bit to sign Talisca on a permanent basis this summer for around €21m before the clause expires.

United have already signed Diogo Dalot from Porto this summer, while an offer for Fred, the Brazil midfielder, has been accepted by Shakhtar Donetsk ahead of him completing a switch to Old Trafford.
