Benfica slaps big price-tag on Talisca after Mourinho comments

Benfica have slapped a €30 million price-tag on young Brazilian Talisca.

Full name, Anderson Conceição Souza, the 20 year-old is making headlines across Europe this week after comments from Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho admitted over the weekend that several "great English teams" were chasing the youngster's signature, but could not push through any deal due to work permit difficulties.

The former Porto coach's comments have kicked Benfica into action and they've made it known through intermediaries that Talisca will not leave for less than €30 million.

Talisca joined Benfica only in July for €4 million from Brazil's Bahia.
