Manchester United midfielder Anderson will be made available to any club that is willing to pay £8 million according to reports in one of this morning’s British tabloids.
According to the daily Star the Brazilian midfielder does not feature in any of new manager David Moyes plans for the club and will be sold if his price tag is met.
The 25-year-old has made just two starts so far this season, and with the club eager to cut their wage bill for players that are not part of Moyes plans Anderson will be free to leave.
A club source said: “Anderson isn’t up to the standards required. He just hasn’t fulfilled his potential. If someone makes a decent bid for him in January he will be sold.”
The departure of Anderson will alleviate his £60,000 per-week wages that Moyes can then offer to the new midfielder he wants to sign for the club.
Anderson joined the Red Devils from Portuguese side Porto in 2007 for £27 million., and at the time was hailed as one of the biggest talents in Europe yet his off the field attitude has led to problems with his fitness that now have United willing to cut him loose.
