The Old Trafford side were reported to have put a bid in for the Brazilian in February last year and may finally get their man this summer

Lazio star Felipe Anderson has admitted he would love to play for Manchester United.

The highly-rated winger was rumoured to be the subject of a £47 million bid from the Red Devils last February, but no deal was agreed and the Brazilian stayed put.

Anderson, who recorded 14 assists last season, told Sport TV that he still has ambitions of moving to England.

“Every player dreams of playing for a team like United,” he said.

"After my season that was very good in the second year, there has always been a lot of speculation.

"If an opportunity shows up, or when I present myself at Lazio, I have to present myself very well.”

However, the 24-year-old also said that he didn’t want to think about his future just yet.

“I leave it with my sister who takes care of my things, with my agents,” he continued.

"I’m enjoying my vacation now, I don’t even want to think about it.

"Of course it’s my career, my future, but I know the work I’ve done, and even what I have to do on vacation.”
