The Italian Serie A club welcomed the 25-year-old Brazilian midfielder to Florence on Thursday, in anticipation of what is expected to be a loan move.
Fiorentina announced on their website that Anderson met with sporting director Daniele Prade and technical director Eduardo Macia.
Anderson, who has spent six-and-a-half seasons with the Barclays Premier League champions after joining from Porto, has dropped down the pecking order at Old Trafford under manager David Moyes.
He clearly has talent albeit without the application thus far. A loan move is smart, if he does what I fear and turn into the beast of a player he threatened to do in his first season at United, at least we can either bring him back or bump up the price for sale.- solskjaer99
