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.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
