£27m Man United flop set to leave in January for free

Manchester United flop Anderson is set to be signed by Brazilian club Germio for nothing this January, Mirror reports.

Anderson was purchased from Porto for £27million back in 2007 to be legendary Man United midfielder Paul Scholes’s long-term replacement, but the 26-year-old is now expected to return to Brazil after making just two appearances for new boss Louis van Gaal this season.

The Red Devils will not be renewing his current deal when it ends in June, and are prepared to let him go for free when the transfer window reopens in January.

But there seems to be several clubs that believe they can resurrect Anderson’s career back in Brazil.

Gremio have been in contact after learning about Anderson’s availability, and Flamengo are monitoring the situation after failing to sign him earlier this year.

However when speaking with Radio Bandeirantes, it seems Anderson prefers a move back to his home-club Gremio.

“There’s always the possibility of returning to Grêmio,” he said. “It’s my home and I still support them – everyone knows that. It would allow me to be near my family.”
