Italian giants Lazio are growing impatient with Manchester United and have told them to hurry up and cough up the cash to sign Brazilian playmaker Felipe Anderson, according to The Sun.
The 22-year-old is one of United’s top transfer targets during the January transfer window, but they are apparently stalling on meeting their £36million valuation.
The Sun report also suggests that the deal could be held up by a dispute over payments that the player feels he is owed by the Serie A side.
Anderson has come in for criticism recently for his apparent poor attitude at being linked with a big money move away and his display over the weekend in the game with Carpi was so lacklustre that he was replaced at half time.
“I believe he can do a lot more. I know it and he knows it,” Lazio coach Stefano Pioli said.
However, the deal could be sped up thanks to a new £108m TV deal United have signed in China, boosting their transfer kitty significantly.
