Anderson: Few chances this season

Anderson: Few chances this season

The Manchester United midfielder travelled to Italy on Thursday for talks with the Serie A club's sporting director Daniele Prade.

Fiorentina posted a photograph of the talks on their website and said a medical would take place today.

And United boss David Moyes later confirmed a loan deal rather than a permanent transfer was the plan.

He said: "We've not been able to get him as many games as we hoped. We feel it's a good opportunity for him - he's going to a good club in a good league so hopefully that gets him some benefit."

Anderson has struggled for first-team football under Moyes in in seventh season at Old Trafford.

The Brazil international, who cost a reported £27m when he joined United from Porto in 2007, has made just four Premier League appearances since Sir Alex Ferguson's departure.

£27 million??? Can't believe he cost that much, was hardly a household name when they bought him and this was several years ago!! A terrible signing and total waste of transfer funds, they could have bought a star man with that, they certainly need one. Makes the Juan Veron deal look astute.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
