Chelsea's Oscar likens Manchester United target Anderson Talisca to Rivaldo
Chelsea playmaker Oscar has likened reported Manchester United target Anderson Talisca to the legendary ex-Brazil forward Rivaldo.
Benfica star Talisca has caught the eye with a number of impressive displays for his club side this season and saw his form rewarded with a first senior call-up to the Brazil side by Dunga for the friendlies with Austria and Turkey.
United reportedly sent scouts to watch Talisca score the winning goal in Benfica's recent 1-0 win over Monaco in the Champions League.
Oscar is quoted as saying by O Jogo: 'Talisca is tall and left-footed like Rivaldo, so comparisons are normal.
'I haven’t followed him much at Benfica, but he has great quality. We are happy that he is with our group.'
