Lazio star Felipe Anderson hasn't agreed personal terms with Manchester United, according to the player's agents.

Reports emerged earlier last week stating the Brazilian had accepted a pre-contract with the Premier League giants, only to see Lazio reject the transfer offer made by the Red Devils.

However, Anderson's representatives have moved quickly to dismiss those reports and confirm that no contract with United had been agreed.

Manchester United Interest

It was well-documented Louis van Gaal wanted to sign the Lazio playmaker over the summer, but his efforts were knocked back by the Serie A side, who eventually got him to sign a new long-term deal at the club.

Reports stated Anderson agreed to a £60,000-a-week contract at Old Trafford and was just waiting for the two teams to agree on a transfer fee, with United prepared to offer around £29 million.

However, Lazio rejected that offer and the Brazilian stayed put.

Base Soccer, who represent the Lazio star, have commented on the speculation and reaffirmed the belief their client is happy in Italy and has no plans on leaving the club, despite reports suggesting he was upset when a move to the Red Devils broke down.

Agent Ends Speculation

"Contrary to reports, Felipe Anderson has not agreed a deal to leave Lazio and join anyone else," Base Soccer told ESPN FC.

"Felipe is doing well at Lazio and is only focused on doing his best for them."

The 22-year-old has been at the Italian club for two years since arriving from Santos for £5.5 million.

After seeing a proposed move to United collapse, he penned a new deal at the club, keeping him there until 2020.
