Will United sign Felipe Anderson? .

Manchester United meet Felipe Anderson's agent

Published 16 Comments

Manchester United officials met with the agent of Lazio star Felipe Anderson on Tuesday. 

This has been claimed by Guardian Sport's deputy news editor Ed Aarons, who has also revealed that the Red Devils are yet to make a bid for the player.

Anderson, 22, has been heavily linked with a stunning £36 million move to Old Trafford recently as Louis van Gaal prepares to change the dynamic of his side in the January transfer window.

The Brazilian ace, who scored 11 goals in all competitions last season, would certainly add pace and skill to United's attacking line, but it's far from certain as to whether the club's hierarchy will offer the required sum to land him. 

If Aarons is to be believed, and United really have met with the agent of Anderson, perhaps an offer will be made imminently.

Aarons tweeted: "Felipe Anderson's agent was in England yesterday to meet officials from Manchester United. No official bid made yet."

Is he worth the money? 

A £36m deal for Anderson would make him one of Manchester United's most expensive ever players, of course, so is he worth the money?

Well, it's difficult to say yes at this stage. At just 22, Anderson is far from the finished article and has a great deal of learning to do as he continues his development. His statistics this season won't exactly excite the Old Trafford faithful; with just five goals in 23 appearances, he's hardly a natural scorer. 

But he has potential and is most definitely the type of player the Red Devils so desperately crave. Pacey and creative, Anderson would certainly offer United an outlet and could form quite the relationship with Anthony Martial. Signing Anderson would be a risk, but it's one Van Gaal may well have to take.
