Lazio Star: Man Utd Made A Bid For Me

Lazio's star midfielder Felipe Anderson has revealed that Manchester United tried to sign him last summer.
 
 
The Red Devils have been heavily linked with the Brazilian over the last year but have so far failed in their attempts to add him to their squad.
 
He told Brazilian outlet UOL: “Whenever we’re approaching the transfer market there’s a lot of talk about my future.
 
“For two years my name has been linked with several European clubs. I continue to work and think only of Lazio, otherwise I just risk being distracted.
 
“My goal is to do well with Lazio and the Brazil Olympic team, I’m not thinking about anything else.
 
“Manchester United? An offer came in last year, Lazio have confirmed that’s the case too. They preferred to keep me though, to have a great season."
 
However, a move could be on according to reports in Italy earlier in the year which claimed that Lazio president Claudio Lotito said Anderson would join United for £47million at the end of the season.
