MANCHESTER UNITED could sell Juan Mata to Besiktas if they sign Anderson Talisca, according to reports.
The Spain international has featured prominently under the Portuguese, who sold him during his time at Chelsea.
He was expected to be one of the biggest casualties when Mourinho succeeded Louis van Gaal last summer, but has proved his worth with 10 goals and four assists across all competitions.
And Turkish newspaper Fanatik claim Mata could end up leaving Old Trafford as a result.
It is said that United can land their man by matching his £21million release clause at the end of the current campaign.
The Turkish giants are supposedly keen to sign the former Valencia star, who will have just a year remaining on his current deal.
Talisca, meanwhile, has scored 11 goals and weighed in with six assists this season.
