RUMOURS: Man Utd to sign Felipe Anderson for €60m

The Biancocelesti chief appears to have admitted to journalists that the Brazilian winger - who was brought to Rome for €8m in 2013 - will move to Old Trafford this summer

Lazio president Claudio Lotito has revealed that Felipe Anderson will join Manchester United for €60 million (£47m), according to reports.

Despite being linked with a move to Old Trafford since last summer, the Brazilian winger has so far stayed put in the Italian capital.

Sporting director Igli Tare admitted last week that Lazio should have sold Anderson to United in the January transfer window.

And now Lotito, who signed the 22-year-old from Santos in 2013, has told journalists that Anderson will be sold on for a huge profit in the summer.

"I bought Felipe Anderson for €8 million (£6m) and I've already sold him on for €60 million (£47m)," Lotito allegedly told reporters from local newspapers La Citta di Salerno and Metropolis.

"Next season he will go to Manchester United."

The Brazilian has not quite hit the heights he reached last season, when he scored 10 goals and assisted a further seven, having scored or created just eight goals in 24 appearances in the 2015-16 Serie A campaign.
