Manchester United are reportedly planning a summer approach for Anderson Talisca, who has been in fine form for Besiktas on loan this season.

The Besiktas winger linked up with the Turkish club on a 1+1 loan deal after he failed to earn a work permit to join one of Liverpool or Wolverhampton Wanderers last summer.

According to The Star, the Red Devils are eyeing a move for the Brazilian in the summer with Mourinho having underlined the desire to improve the squad further.

Talisca has managed 13 goals and four assists during the ongoing campaign, and United are prepared to cough up a fee of around £17m in order to convince Benfica into a sale this summer.

Super agent Jorge Mendes is due to play a key part in the transfer negotiation with the winger not keen on a return to his parent club in the summer.

Premier League club Everton are also said to hold an interest in the 23-year-old, who is eager to ply his trade in the English top flight.
