Manchester United need to be out of the blocks quickly if they want to find some rare, available quality in the more difficult of the transfer windows.
But, if latest reports are to be believe, then they are definitely on the right track.
Because, The Daily Mail reports that Manchester United have held further talks in an attempt to sign the wonderful young creator Felipe Anderson of Lazio.
Manchester United have held further talks about signing Lazio playmaker Felipe Anderson in their search for a new creative midfielder.
The 22-year-old Brazilian was a summer target for Louis van Gaal and Old Trafford scouts have continued to monitor his progress in Rome, with Lazio valuing the player at £35million.
We think that £35m is peanuts for a talent this good.
At 22 this guy has the world his feet. We feel that he has the quality to get into the category of top 5 players in the world over the next few years.
He’s got that vital quality of pace. He can out sprint most players WITH the ball and he loves to drive at the heart of the opposition defence with the ball at his feet. How Manchester United have lacked a player like that in the engine room for the past few years.
He’s scored 5 goals in 19 games for Lazio his season and got double figures last. He also made his debut for Brazil this year and his profile is set to rise very quickly.
With Anderson in the team, either on the wing or through the middle, Manchester United would quickly climb the table.
Let’s see his magic.
