Lazio midfielder Felipe Anderson took to Twitter this week to welcome the new opportunities that would be coming in 2016 but probably didn’t expect the sort of response he got.
With rumours linking the Brazilian midfielder to Manchester United continuing to intensify, fans took it as an opportunity to push the case that little bit further by sending welcome messages to Anderson.
Of course, at this stage there has been nothing more than reports about Man United being interested in Anderson but when did that stop fans previously?

To be fair, it worked a treat with Morgan Schneiderlin in the summer, maybe Anderson will follow suit…
(Note – Schneiderlin joined United not too long after this Instagram post)
In reality, fans can send messages they want to any player but it’s got more chance of never being seen at all than actually influencing any sort of decision.
As for Anderson, don’t expect these rumours to go to bed just yet because until the 22-year-old comes out and denies them, or Lazio do, then they will continue to surface.
