The Brazilian recently finished the first season of a two-year loan deal with Turkish club, Beskitas. The 23-year old scored 13 goals in 22 league appearances last season for Senel Gunes' side.
Speaking to Globoesporte, Talisca said of a potential move: "It's a question that I can not answer… yet.
"But it's a love that exists, I will not lie.
"But it does not depend on me alone, it depends on Benfica and my agents who are dealing with the situation. Soon, there will be the news.
"It's something that all players want [a move to Manchester United].
"I had a good season and, as I said, his love is old and I like his work as well. I hope everything works out."
