Besiktas manager Senol Gunes has confirmed that Anderson Talisca will move to a Premier League club this summer.

The forward spent the season on loan in Turkey but remains contracted to Benfica, which makes his comments, suspicious to say the least.

Talisca netted 37 goals across all competitions and impressed in the Champions League stages.

In the past 24 hours, reports have stepped up a notch linking Talisca with a move to Manchester United.

Now Gunes has added fuel to the fire by confirming he would move to a Premier League club this summer, although he doesn’t say which one.

Jose Mourinho looks set to lose Marouane Fellaini on a free, as per Sky Sports, and after losing Michael Carrick to retirement, in turn, should look to add a player capable of matching the Belgian’s height and Carrick’s creativity. The former England international was a key figure in Sir Alex Ferguson’s later squads. His ability to protect the defence and get the ball forward is what this United team lacks today.

There is a sense of fight about Talisca that would go down well with United fans. It’s something I wouldn’t be surprised to see Mourinho push on Ed Woodward to add to his side this summer.
