manchester united, lazio,


A deal between Manchester United and Italian Serie A side Lazio for Brazilian striker Felipe Anderson has been put on hold as the 22-year-old winger waits to find out when Lazio will pay the bonus he is entitled to on any selling fee over his £35 million buyout clause.

According to’s Kris Voakes, Anderson is entitled to a small percentage of any selling fee above £35 million with the Rome based club wanting to pay out the money over time rather than just one simple onetime payment.

This hiccup has apparently stalled any deal that Manchester United had hoped would be finalized quickly, leading the Red Devils to utilise the talents of Super-Agent Mino Raiola to act as an intermediary during negotiations.

Raiola, who represents Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mario Balotelli, is now working behind the scenes in order to get a deal done according to Corriere della Serra (via Sportwitness).
