Brazilian outfit eyeing move for Manchester United star
Manchester United transfer news: Santos linked with a move for Anderson
Brazilian outfit Santos are eyeing up a bid for Manchester United midfielder Anderson, according to Portuguese newspaper A Bola.
Anderson has found regular first-team football hard to come by since joining Manchester United in 2007.
The 24-year-old has only made 20 appearances for the Red Devils this term, and has started just five Premier League games.
Should he sign for Santos he would line up alongside Brazilian superstar Neymar, who was reportedly a summer target for Manchester United.
The former Porto star has previously insisted he was happy with life at Manchester United despite his lack of game time.
"Everyone knows I am happy at the club," he told the club's official website. I have had a lot of injuries but I have never let the smile go from my face. I try to help the team all the time. This is me. When I want to leave, I will have to talk to the boss first. I don't have any issues.
Anderson is in Manchester United's squad for their game against Reading this evening.
