Manchester United face competition from China for the signing of Benfica attacking midfielder Anderson Talisca.

The Brazilian, who is returning to Portugal after a two-year loan spell at Besiktas, will be available for £35million this summer.

Talisca has been tipped to join Manchester United – but the Red Devils will have to battle with two Chinese Super League clubs to sign him.

O Jogo reports that Mourinho’s bid for the 24-year-old has been matched by two unnamed clubs in the CSL.

Talisca must now decide whether he wants to play in the Premier League, or head to China, where he can earn more money.

Wolves had also been linked with an ambitious move for the player, who is represented by super agent Jorge Mendes.

Talisca impressed during his time in Turkey, scoring 27 goals in the Super Lig. However, Besiktas rejected the opportunity to sign him permanently, leaving the door open for a transfer to Old Trafford.

If he did move to Manchester, he would be Mourinho’s second midfield signing of the summer, after the arrival of Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk was confirmed earlier in the week.
