Felipe Anderson has established himself as a key performer for Rome giants Lazio since moving in 2013 and would significantly improved United’s forward options as the Old Trafford club attempt to recover from a slump dating back to November.
Louis Van Gaal’s men are winless in the last eight games and have only picked up just 2 points in the league in December while a run of four straight losses was just recently ended in Monday’s goalless draw with Premier League champions Chelsea.
Felipe Anderson scored 11 goals and added 10 assists last season as Lazio finished 3rd in the Serie A and has scored 5 times in addition to 3 assists this season in what has been a poor season for his side. His transfer is expected to add much needed creativity, guile and imagination to a misfiring frontline.
The January transfer window represents a fantastic opportunity for United’s Dutch manager Louis Van Gaal to turn things around with some quality reinforcements and the imminent arrival of Felipe Anderson could kick-start that.
