Manchester United are ready to test Lazio's resolve to keep talented playmaker Felipe Anderson by making a £30m bid for the Brazil U21 international. The 22-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer having also attracted admiring glances from newly crowned champions Chelsea. However, it's the Red Devils that look set to firm up their interest first with a big-money bid for the exciting midfielder as Louis van Gaal looks to lure Anderson to Old Trafford. The veteran Dutch coach's hand could be strengthened by the fact the Serie 'A' outfit are keen on recruiting Robin van Persie, so a swap-deal involving the former Arsenal striker could help convince the Italian's to cash-in. Manchester United's intentions have been made that bit harder by the fact that Anderson penned a new five-year contract at Stadio Olimpico last week, but they remain quietly optimistic of securing the South American's signature.
