Manchester United set to sign Roberto Firmino

In a piece of news that has been dying to be confirmed since the last week or so, Manchester United are on the verge of announcing the signing of Brazil international, Roberto Firmino who is eager to leave German Bundesliga side, Hoffenheim.

The star playmaker has been one of the most consistent performers in the German league for the past couple of seasons and following some really great displays, has attracted interest from a host of European sides. However, the player is much more keen on making a switch to Old Trafford where he believes he will further his development and will also have a great chance at playing regular Champions League football, surrounded by players who have a burning desire to win titles.

And following the official arrival of Memphis Depay to United, Firmino, who is currently on national team duty with Brazil at the Copa America in Chile, the midfielder could be the club’s second signing of the season.
