Anderson: Predicting a number of players to leave Old Trafford in the summer

The Brazil midfielder joined Fiorentina on loan until the end of the season earlier this month, and has no intention of returning in the summer.

Anderson, appearing at a press conference in Florence, insisted he was "here to stay" - and if his words are to be believed, he is not the only player keen on leaving the Premier League champions.

According to the 25-year-old, Portugal winger Nani - who signed a new five-year United contract last summer - is among a host of stars who want to jump ship.

A number of first-team members are out of contract at the end of the season and Anderson believes a large number of them will leave the club.

Question marks hang over the likes of Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra and Rio Ferdinand, who all have contracts that are set to expire in July.

There are also doubts over whether Nani and Mexico forward Javier Hernandez will stay at the club.

Anderson told ESPN: "I'm sure that lots of players want out, especially people like myself and Nani who have been in Manchester for seven or eight years.

"Manchester United is a huge club, a club that does everything for its players but sometimes a footballer wants to leave just to experience a different way to play football, to learn something as well."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
