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.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
