Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that Benfica starlet Anderson Talisca (20) is one of the players that Chelsea have been tracking since 2012.
Mourinho recently suggested that several clubs had looked at buying the Brazilian striker over the summer but unfortunately all deals were halted by work permit restrictions.
As quoted on the Daily Express website, Mourinho said: “I’m glad to see he’s reading Alexandre Dumas. I admire him for that. I’m not that cultural. I limit myself to grammar.
“I don’t like when a professional colleague doubt my words. Talisca is one of the players we’ve been scouting since 2012.”
