Our Manchester United supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern are hung up on two words right now and they are Felipe and Anderson.
Yes, the Lazio winger is the talk of the bar right now with The Independent having noted yesterday that the Italian giants have lowered their asking price to £36 million with the Red Devils expected to act upon this with an imminent bid.
Having been linked with United back in the summer, the Brazilian international is clearly someone who is highly thought of by the hierarchy at Old Trafford but if signed, he’d have to show a lot more consistent form than big money summer arrival Memphis Depay.
The same reports also claim that Lazio are looking at current Monaco loanee Stephan El Shaarawy as a direct replacement for Anderson and if those reports are accurate, it would appear that Anderson is edging closer to his big Premier League switch.
Capped just once by the senior international Brazilian team to date, moving to Old Trafford would improve his international status while giving him the chance to display his flair and skill in the best league in the world compared to Serie A.
With Anderson’s proposed arrival in the pipeline, how would he look in Manchester United’s best eleven? Here’s how we reckon he’d fit in.
