Man United agree £35M deal for Brazilian Arsenal target

Manchester United have agreed a deal with Lazio to sign Felipe Anderson, the Metro reports.

The Brazilian was heavily linked with the exit door last summer, with Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and PSG all interested, but decided to stay put in Serie A.

Anderson is now set to join up with the Red Devils, should personal terms be agreed over a move in the coming weeks.

United have agreed to pay £30 Million up front for the pacey winger, with a further £5 Million in bonus payments, which could prove to be a huge fee for a player struggling for form this term.

The Lazio winger has completed the full 90 minutes in only six of the club’s 17 Serie A outings this term, but at 22, is highly expected to become one of the best attackers in the world game.

Anderson has earned only one cap for Brazil’s senior side, but will undoubtedly earn a work permit due to the fee being paid for his signature.
