Lazio midfielder Felipe Anderson has revealed he was close to joining Manchester United back in 2015.
The Brazilian, who has made over 100 appearances for Lazio since signing from Santos in 2013, said "every player dreams of playing for a team like United."
However, when asked about the reported interest in his services, the 24-year-old told Portuguese outlet Sport TV: "Two years ago, yes. After my season that was very good in the second year, there has always been a lot of speculation.
"In the last two years, I leave it with my sister who takes care of my things, with my agents. 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. Every player dreams of playing for a team like United."
