Manchester United is all set to place Anderson on loan to the Italian club Fiorentina. He is expected to make way to Florence tomorrow for the medical tests.
This has proved to be one of the toughest seasons ever at Old Trafford for Anderson. He got very limited chances to play in the first half of the season and he did himself no favour at all by wasting those chances. He was even speculated to be sold during this mid season transfer window, but, it seems the Manchester United management didn’t receive any suitable bid for him and thus, they decided to loan him out so that he gets a bit of playing time.
Anderson himself would be quite pleased to move to Italy on a temporary basis because he was quite clearly frustrated to have been warming the bench at United.
Confirming the news that Anderson has been placed on loan, the Red Devils boss Moyes said, “Unfortunately, we couldn’t give Anderson that many playing opportunities, but, what’s good for him is that he has now been loaned out to a quality club. I hope that he plays up to his abilities there.”
Consistency is something that you can’t associate with Anderson. He puts up some really top performances, but, not regularly and that’s not how you become a great player. Greatness comes when you have good days on the field more often than not.
Now that he is going to Italy, the 25 years old Brazilian international can be rest assured that he wouldn’t have to warm the bench as much as he was doing that at United, but, he would have to ensure that he delivers the goods there and at least attracts interests from some big clubs around the globe.
