The Manchester United and former Brazil midfielder has joined Italian side Fiorentina on loan for the rest of the season.
After joining from Porto in 2007, Anderson has made a total of 177 appearances for the reds. However Anderson has only gone the full distance in a game once since the start of the last season. Manchester United manager David Moyes had this to say about the man who once cost his team a reported 20m. "We've not been able to get him as many games as he'd hoped, or we hoped we might get him". He added "We feel it's a good opportunity for him". The 25-year-old hasn’t played for United since their 2-0 win against Stoke City on the 18th of December.
