Manchester United target skips medical with club because he wants to join Chelsea


Lazio attacking midfielder Felipe Anderson has refused to join his teammates to undergo the regular medical procedure before the start of pre-season.

The Italian side have left for their pre-season training camp in Auronzo, without the Brazilian.

Anderson is determined to leave the club this summer, first to feature in the 2016 Olympic Games and then to join Antonio Conte at Chelsea.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the 23-year-old is desperate to make a move to Stamford Bridge.

Last summer he was a confirmed target for then-manager Louis van Gaal at Manchester United but it seems Jose Mourinho is not interested in signing the talented player.
