Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern have been alerted to a report on Football Insider – with the media outlet suggesting that the Red Devils are preparing a £40 million bid to secure a deal for Lazio winger Felipe Anderson.
Anderson has come up in conversation here in the Transfer Tavern literally everyday during the January window, and it seems that this particular piece of transfer gossip is never going to go away!
The 22-year-old attacking midfielder has been simply sensational for the Serie A side this season, and our landlord here in the Tavern thinks he would flourish in the Premier League – and he would ultimately make United a more formidable team once again.
Anderson joined Lazio from Santos in 2013, and he has gone on to become one of Serie A’s most dangerous wingers in the league, and his impressive form has seemingly caught the attention of Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal.
Our resident United fans enjoying a pie and pint here in the Tavern feel that United simply need to sign some more attacking players in this window, with them all agreeing Anderson would be an astute signing!
Manchester United fans…… What do you make of this news? Would you like to see the Brazilian attacker at your club? Is £40m too much? Let us know below!
