Manchester United Ready £30M Bid For Lazio Midfield Ace

Despite claiming that his future is definitely at Lazio, reports filtering through today suggest Manchester United are ready to offer £30 million for the services of Lazio man Felipe Anderson. 

Speaking last week, The Independent quote Anderson as saying:

“Next year? All I know is I’ll be playing for Lazio. I only recently renewed my contract for another five years. I’m thinking about the biancoceleste shirt and nothing else.

“I don’t know of any offers, my future is at Lazio.”

However it is believed, according to The Sun, that Louis van Gaal wishes to sign the 22-year-old Brazilian.

His ten goals and eight assists in the Serie A last season suggest he could add a great attacking threat from midfield for United.

He would also add significant competition to the likes of Ashley Young, Marouane Fellaini, Juan Mata and Ander Herrera, who often feature in more advanced midfield positions.

He may well declare his future is at Lazio but when United come calling it can often be extremely difficult to resist the temptations of the Premier League giants.
