Manchester United's finances will be stretched if they want to sign either of in demand wingers Felipe Anderson or Sadio Mane.
Tuttomercatoweb report [via Sky Italia] that Serie A side Lazio are now demanding 60 million Euros, £44.1 million, for Brazilian attacker Felipe Anderson.
This is despite Mane being in the doghouse with the Saints, after being late to a team meeting and subsequently dropped ahead of Saturday's 1-0 away defeat to Norwich City.
What should they do?
At these prices Louis van Gaal should take his Manchester United budget elsewhere, no matter how much money he has to spend.
Both players are being substantially overvalued by their clubs, and in Anderson's case, is unproven in English football.
United are at risk of being milked extortionate fees because clubs know they have money, and they need to take a stand and look for better value elsewhere, rather than pay up.
