Lazio deny reports Felipe Anderson is set to join Manchester United

Lazio have issued a denial to reports in Gazzetta dello Sport claiming president Claudio Lotito was overheard saying that he has sold Felipe Anderson to Manchester United for €60 million.

Speaking after witnessing his other club, Salernitana, draw 1-1 with Crotone in Serie B, Lotito was reported to have said to several dignitaries after finishing up his media commitments: "I bought Felipe Anderson for €8m [from Santos] and I've sold him on for €60m. Next season, he's going to Manchester United."

However, Lazio released a statement on their official website maintaining that the reports were not true.

It read: "In reference to the statements attributed to President Claudio Lotito regarding the alleged sale of the player Felipe Anderson, SS Lazio notes that these reports are devoid of any foundation."

United were reportedly keen on signing the 22-year-old during the January transfer window, with Lazio saying last month that they rejected a €50m offer from the Premier League club in August.

The Brazil attacking midfielder has scored six goals so far this season after netting 10 as Lazio finished fourth in Serie A last term.
