The 25-year-old has been an infrequent presence since David Moyes took over at Old Trafford, starting only three games and making five further appearances off the bench.

He had not been involved since the 2-0 win over Stoke a month ago and now hopes to help his new side reach the Champions League, joining Alessandro Matri and Antonio Rosati in boosting their squad.

Fiorentina sit fourth in Serie A, five points behind third-placed Napoli and 15 off leaders Juventus.

Anderson said: "I was happy at Manchester for seven or eight years, it was a big club for me... but now it's a new challenge and the time to change.

"Fiorentina only missed out on Champions League qualification by two points last season, so this year I want to help them get into the Champions League."

The Brazil international arrived at Old Trafford in 2007 from Porto and made 179 appearances for United in all competitions.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
