Cape Town - Lazio
winger Felipe Anderson has revealed that Manchester United were once
interested in him and that he still dreams of playing for the Premier
The 24-year-old was linked with a £47m move to the Red Devils in February 2016 but a deal could not be sealed and the Brazilian stayed at Lazio.
Anderson has admitted that he still entertains the fantasy of one day signing for a team like United.
He told Sport TV about United's interest, saying: “Two years ago, yes.
"After my season that was very good in the second year, there has always been a lot of speculation.
"It ends up that the player begins to think a lot about it and the focus goes away a little.
“Every player dreams of playing for a team like United.”
He added: "I’m enjoying my vacation now, I don’t even want to think about it.
"Of course it’s my career, my future, but I know the work I’ve done, and even what I have to do on vacation, take care of myself.
“Because if an opportunity shows up, or when I present myself at Lazio, I have to present myself very well.”
