Manchester United have agreed a £35million deal to sign Lazio star Felipe Anderson and the Brazilian will be pocketing a whopping £170,000-per week at Old Trafford, according to reports from the Metro
With the transfer window reopening, it has been no surprise whatsoever to see Manchester United being linked with a host of players.
Bringing in a new attacker to rejuvenate the strike force is seen as the main priority for manager Louis van Gaal and the Dutchman has moved on quickly to pull off a major deal by securing the services of Lazio star Felipe Anderson – if reports from the Metro are to be believed.
According to the claims, United have struck a £35million agreement with Lazio – a staggering £30million fee up front and £5million in future bonuses depending on the 22-year old’s performances at Old Trafford.
In addition, United are prepared to offer Anderson weekly wages of around £170,000-per week, which will represent a £100,000 increase on his current deal at Lazio.
Anderson has proven himself to be one of the finest attacking players in the Italian Serie A and although United are paying big bucks to sign the Brazilian international, he could well be worth the money in the long term.
