Benfica midfielder Anderson Talisca has completed his move to Besiktas on a one-year loan with an option to extend by an additional season.
The Black Eagles have disclosed the financial details of the transfer on the Istanbul stock exchange.
Talisca will earn €1.5 million for the 2016-17 season and Benfica will be paid a €2 million loan fee.
Besiktas also have an undisclosed buyout clause option which is reported to be worth €25 million and will remain active until the end of the season unless his loan deal is extended.
Talisca is highly rated in Portugal in Brazil. A Bola journalist Rui Miguel Melo described Talisca to Turkish-football.com as being a bright young prospect with potential if given a chance.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho praised the young midfielder two-years ago during his time in charge of Chelsea, praising Benfica for signing him.
Speaking to Portuguese broadcaster TVI24, back in 2014 Mourinho said: “I think Benfica hired well. They say Talisca is unknown, but he is only so unknown because he’s only not playing in England because he doesn’t have a work permit. If he had one, he would be here!
“There were many English teams, great teams and important, that wanted him. Moreover, there were those who wanted to sign him, even though he could not play for now.
“They wanted to sign him, put him in a minor league [on loan] and hope that eventually he came to be selected [for Brazil’s national team], and would consequently then get the work permit.”
