Felipe Anderson dismisses transfer speculation amid Manchester United rumours

by Tanveer Arayan

Felipe Anderson has dismissed rumours suggesting that he could leave Lazio at the end of the season for Manchester United.

The Brazilian winger has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford after an encouraging season for Stefano Pioli’s side.

However, Anderson insisted he’s focused on playing well at Lazio and earning a call-up to Brazil’s national side.

“There’s nothing concrete,” Anderson said.

“The newspapers talk about my possible move to England, but I am a Lazio player and I want to do well here. And I know if I play well here I can get the call from the national team, that is my ultimate goal.

“There’s great competition for a place at the Olympics, let alone the senior team. We’re a competitive country, we have two formidable groups.

“I’m sure that the difficult period we’ve faced was due to a transition phase. There are very strong players at our disposal.”

It is clear that United are in need of more creative players ahead of the next campaign and Anderson would certainly fit the bill.

With United unlikely to qualify for the Champions League next term, attracting players will be more difficult and money will be more of a deciding factor when it comes to potential incomings. United have more financial clout than Lazio and Anderson may be tempted to make the move to Manchester, despite his public stance.
