Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are getting carried away with themselves after the Sunday Mirror revealed they were pursuing Lazio’s promising youngster Filipe Anderson.
The Brazilian’s name may bring back memories of their former midfielder but this flying winger is set to add to their promising attack for next year.
Louis van Gaal sent scouts out last week to the Stadio Olympico to monitor the 22-year-old’s progress in Serie A.
Van Gaal’s intentions have been clear recently as he looks to inject more pace in their attack, after recently signing Memphis Depay.
The Dutchman is also keeping tabs on West Brom’s Saido Berahino and Birmingham youngster Demarai Gray.
But Anderson is considered to be on another level compared to the two names previously mentioned, following his breakthrough season under Rafa Benitez.
