Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are pretty relieved are reading the news in the Daily Star – with the publication claiming that United are closing in on a £36.9 million deal for Lazio’s attacking midfielder Felipe Anderson.
Felipe Anderson is a name that has been said a ludicrous amount of times over the past few weeks in the Transfer Tavern, with the 22-year-old being brought up in conversation literally every single day.
Our landlord here inside the Tavern feels United are in desperate need of some fresh blood, as they have seriously struggled to score goals and win games this season – and our landlord feels Anderson will add an element of creativity that will help the club ten-fold.
The Brazil international has made 18 appearances in the league for the Serie A club so far this season, and has been an incredibly influential figure for the side – and our resident United fans are just hoping Louis van Gaal can finally secure this deal!
The large contingent of United fans over by the bar here in the Tavern feel that the 5ft 10 midfielder is exactly what is needed at Old Trafford, and say at his young age, he is only going to get better!
Manchester United fans….. What do you make of this news? Happy? Is he what you need? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
