Pereirinha: Lazio blocked Anderson Man Utd move

Former Lazio defender Bruno Pereirinha has revealed Manchester United failed in an attempt to sign Felipe Anderson.

The Brazilian midfielder is currently with Porto on-loan from West Ham United this season.

Pereirinha played with Anderson at Lazio and says United tried to sign him before his move to the Irons.

He told A Bola: "The transfer (to Porto) did not surprise me because he was also close to signing for United.

"But Lazio at the time did not want to do without him."
