Manchester United transfer news
The 21-year-old Brazilian has lit up Serie A with some fine displays this season, and is now attracting Premier League interest ahead of the next transfer window.
United look in particular need of strengthening upfront after a poor season from Radamel Falcao, and Anderson’s 10 goals in 22 games this season have shown him to have plenty of potential.
Chelsea are also known to be looking for strikers, with Didier Drogba perhaps in his final season as a Blues player this term.
