Manchester United reportedly prepared to bid €50m for Felipe Anderson

SS Lazio fans

Manchester United have been linked with yet another exciting young attacking talent.

According to a report from Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, Manchester United are prepared to offer €50million for Lazio player Felipe Anderson.

The 22-year-old Brazilian is predominantly a left winger but he can also play on the opposite flank or as an attacking midfielder if required, and his blistering form this season has attracted plenty of attention.

After a slow start to the campaign, Anderson enjoyed a remarkable spell in the winter, scoring five goals and providing five assists in just five Serie A matches.

A minor injury meant a brief spell on the side-lines but the alleged United target later returned to add another five goals and two assists in the league.

In total this season the winger has netted 11 goals and set up an additional 10 in all competitions and he is regarded as one of the hottest properties in Europe.

The latest report claims United are prepared to blow their rivals out of the water with a huge €50million bid and if he were to arrive that would surely mark the end for the likes of Nani and potentially Angel di Maria; especially when you consider the resurgence of Ashley Young and the imminent arrival of Memphis Depay.
