Anderson finally puts five-and-a-half years of struggle behind him.
Manchester United midfielder Anderson is set to complete a loan move to Fiorentina after becoming surplus to requirements at Old Trafford, according to David Moyes.
“He is going out on loan to Fiorentina,” Moyes told the club’s website.
“We’ve not been able to get him as many games as he’d hoped, or we hoped we might get him, so we feel it’s a good opportunity for him.”
The Brazilain arrived at the Red Devils in 2007 after they paid FC Porto a whopping £25m for the 25-year-old.
Since then Anderson has played 179 matches for the Premier League champions in all competitions, winning four Premier League titles and the Champions League in that time.
The South American was also awarded the prestigious Golden Boy prize in 2008 for being the best young player on the planet.
However, since then midfielder’s stature in the world of football has plummeted and the Brazil international has struggled for game time with United this term.
In total Anderson has started just three games in 2013/14 and has been publicly criticised for being overweight for a professional footballer.
Moyes is clearly not a fan and the sale of the midfielder signals the start of what is likely to be a squad overhaul under the Scot.
As yet the 50-year-old’s has failed to stamp his own mark on the team and midfield has been an area particularly pinpointed for criticism.
