Van Gaal to decide what to do with Anderson

Incoming Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has a big summer ahead of him as he plots to take the fallen giants back to the top once again.

He is expected to be involved in a number of transfer activities once he takes up the job following the World Cup in Brazil with a number of players expected to come in as he looks to rebuild the side for his own. And with many players likely to leave the club, he has his task cut out, especially with the likes of Anderson and Ashley Young.

The Brazilian spent the second half of last season on loan at Italian club Fiorentina but reports suggest the Italians will not exercise their right to buy the player outright this summer, meaning the former Porto player will return to United.

And his form for the club as well as during the time he spent away from United will be a cause for concern with not many willing clubs eager to take on the underperforming player on board.

Once hailed as the next Ronaldinho, Anderson was signed by United boss Sir Alex Ferguson for a whopping £ 20 million when he was just twenty years old from the Portuguese side but in spite of winning several honors for the club, he has never really settled at the club with injuries and off form hampering his run in the side.

The Brazilian featured just four times for former manager David Moyes and had the Scotsman been around, he would surely have tried to get rid of him. But Louis van Gaal wants to play a waiting game and see what Anderson can do on the pitch before taking a decision on him.

Whatever happens, though, this is one story that will continue till the end of the summer.
