Man United fans to see Brazilian deal happen as star on his way out

Manchester United midfielder Anderson looks set to return to his native Brazil with Gremio leading the chase for his signature.

Anderson has no future at United and the midfielder has managed just two appearances this season under Louis van Gaal, despite their extensive injury problems.

He will not be offered a new deal when his current agreement ends in June and United are prepared to let him leave on a free in January.

Anderson, signed from Portuguese side Porto for £27million in 2007, told Brazilian radio that he is open to a move back to his homeland, with boyhood club Gremio his preferred option.

As quoted on the Daily Mirror website, he said: “There’s always the possibility of returning to Grêmio.

“It’s my home and I still support them – everyone knows that. It would allow me to be near my family.”

Anderson also revealed that the Porto Alegre club have shown interest in the past but were never able to tie up a deal.

“I’ve spoken to them before but it never reached the point of a [concrete] offer.

“I was close to moving before I went to Fiorentina. I was prepared to take a pay cut but the club didn’t get back to me on that occasion.” © 2017 Frontier Theme
