Lazio have denied claims that the club have agreed to sell Felipe Anderson to Manchester United.
Club president Claudio Lotito was reported to have confirmed a deal had been reached that would see Anderson moving to Old Trafford in the summer for £47million.
"Felipe Anderson will move to Manchester United next season, for €60 million (£47million)," Lotito is quoted as saying to Calciomercato.
"I bought Felipe Anderson for €8 million, and I’ve already sold him on for €60 million."
However, the Serie A club have released a statement rubbishing the reports.
"In reference to statements attributed to President Claudio Lotito regarding the alleged sale of the player Felipe Anderson, S.S. Lazio notes that these reports are devoid of any foundation," the statement read.
United have been linked with the 22-year-old for some time and were thought to be close to signing him during the January transfer window before failing to complete a deal ahead of the deadline.
