Manchester United fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are gloating after the Daily Star revealed that the Red Devils are preparing a £36 million bid for Lazio midfielder Felipe Anderson.
The publication suggests that the 22-year-old attacking midfielder is also a transfer target for Chelsea and Manchester City, but it seems that Louis van Gaal’s side have taken a foothold in the race to sign the player.
As our landlord here in the Tavern quips, Anderson does look like a player who can create opportunities out of nothing, and he could prove to be a shrewd signing.
United fans here in the Tavern over by the billiards table agree with the landlord, in that it could turn out to be an astute purchase – but most of them have issues with the extortionate £36 million fee being demanded for him.
