Man United Closing in to Finally Sign Star with $50.6m Move

Angel Di Maria Man UnitedManchester United qualified for the UEFA Champions League group stages by beating Club Brugge in the play-off tie and have got a tough draw in the competition.

The Red Devils have drawn Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven, Russian side CSKA Moscow and German club Wolfsburg in their UCL group.

The English side must reinforce their squad before the transfer window closes in a few days.

United’s defense has been rock solid so far and they have lured two quality midfielders to solve the midfield dilemma as well. However, Louis van Gaal badly needs to strengthen his attack and a quality playmaker is needed to replace Angel Di Maria.

Metro cite reports claiming that Man United are ready to offer $50.6 million to sign Lazio attacker Felipe Anderson.

As per the provided link, Lazio failed to qualify for the CL group stages and the Old Trafford club want to take advantage by securing the signing of Anderson.

Capable of playing on either flank, the Brazilian will largely improve United’s attack. Last season, the 22-year-old Samba star scored 11 goals and provided 10 assists in 37 games for the Serie A side.

    Anderson is a more quality player, pacy creative and a scorer and at only 22, he still has a lot to offer at old trafford. But Woodward should act so swiftly and get the deal completed before the enemies snatch again from Your hands!

    van gaal wake up and get anderson as soon as possible

    I don’t know why Brazilians are not always successful in Man Utd, but I know that when Felipe Anderson comes he will be successful.

  4. Eric says:

    Anderson was not impressive in CL play against Leverkusen. I don’t see any quality that he brings to the team that we don’t already have. I would prefer to snatch Kevin De Bruyn away from rival City or sign Reus. Also, a good quality CD such as Laporte, Stones or Garay would be a better buy than Anderson.

    I think this is the time man united to make a good buying in the transfer market, because they have found themselves with a turf group, with the likes of wurlfburdge, psv, cska Moscow, as they are not a small klub. Therefore, man unite need to go more faster in the transfer market for the likes of felipe Anderson, antonio griezman and the like of sadio mane to boast up the attacking force. So Van gaal should force Edwood ward for this three players, and in doing this united will sure win most important trophies. But as for the central defence area, for now is improving, but not too good enough, so I guess Van gaal should leave that for the january transfer window. But failure to get this attacking players I mentioned, then Van gaal should consider him self sacked. This my best view for now.

    United takes so long to finish a deal and that’s why sometimes they loose the players they want to sing.

    Man United fans how many players do u want LVG to sign? We have enough depth and u’re still clamouring for more players. LVG should concentrate on the present squad and forget about signing any other player.playing Depay, Herrera and Mata behind Rooney is enough to split any defence in the world. Look at what happened to Dimaria and Falcao last season. Is all about the players adapting to LVG philosophy.

  8. Chucks says:

    Utd have become an eye for a good player for other clubs, we identity, they sign. Cuadrado, Pedro and otamendi all stolen from Utd because of our delay in signing players. Change your strategies whoever is concerned . One more striker with killer instinct and a quality defender needed.

  9. Mandeh Conteh says:

    This Woodward man should be chopping wood not man united. He is not signing the players he is surpose to sign. Look at how he handles the Pedro issue. We need players like Maco Reus, Lewandoski, Hummels, Bale, you name them. Everything has a price so everything is for sale. This man knows nothing about good players, he is looking for cheap players instead.
