Lazio insist comments attributed to club president Claudio Lotito concerning the possible sale of Felipe Anderson to Manchester United are "devoid of any foundation".

Reports in Italy claimed Lotito had been overheard saying he had agreed to sell the 22-year-old Brazilian playmaker to United for 60million euros (?46.8m), but the Serie A side on Monday afternoon dismissed the rumours.

A statement published on Lazio's official website read: " In reference to statements attributed to president Claudio Lotito regarding the alleged sale of Felipe Anderson, Lazio can confirm they are devoid of any foundation."

Il Messaggero claimed journalists heard Lotito saying Felipe Anderson, who has made 24 league appearances for the Biancocelesti this season, scoring six goals, was on his way to Old Trafford while speaking to colleagues at Salernitana's Serie B match against Crotone on Sunday.
