Manchester United transfer target & possible offensive solution opens the door to Old Trafford switch

Posted by

Lazio forward Felipe Anderson has admitted that he is not certain if he will be at the Serie A club when the transfer window ends.

The Brazilian attacker has been heavily linked away from the Rome heavyweights in recent times, with the Daily Star reporting that he is being considered by Louis van Gaal as a possible offensive solution for Manchester United.

The Red Devils have been lacklustre in front of goal for much of the campaign, with big-money summer signings Memphis Depay and Anthony Martial failing to truly convince that they can lead the line for the title hopefuls. Indeed, the north-west giants’ offensive failings were evident once again when they laboured to a 1-0 victory over lower-league Sheffield United in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Felipe Anderson, by contrast, has found the net five times in Serie A so far this season, contributing one assist, and shone once again—albeit in a three-minute cameo—as he found the net in the 95th minute of Lazio’s 3-1 defeat of high-flying Fiorentina in Italian top flight action this weekend.

Speaking to Sky Italia after the match [as per Daily Star], the attacker—who can play on either flank—admitted that he wasn’t certain he’d still be with the Rome-based heavyweights come the end of window.

“I don’t know. For now I’m just concentrating on my job,” the 22-year-old began, seemingly leaving the door open to a switch to Manchester.
