Italian sources claim Lazio will sell Felipe Anderson to Manchester United and snatch Roma target Stephan El Shaarawy from Milan.
It is well known that Louis van Gaal sees Felipe Anderson as the ideal reinforcement for his team in January and some of the figures bandied about in the Press have seemed remarkable.
Today the Brazilian was dropped from the line-up for the Serie A trip to Fiorentina, fuelling reports of an imminent exit.
According to Mediaset Premium, negotiations are progressing well and Lazio are prepared to sell Felipe Anderson for €45m (around £34m).
The decision was made to give up Felipe Anderson so Lazio can swoop for Milan outcast El Shaarawy.
The young Italian is returning from a loan spell at Monaco and has been heavily linked with Lazio’s rivals Roma.
Milan want €14m for the Little Pharaoh, but it’s rumoured Roma want to take him on loan with an option to buy that is not mandatory.
