After another injury plagued year for Anderson, perhaps his time at Manchester United is coming to an end. 

Based on skill and quality, Anderson is a good player. Not a world-class player, but still a good player and he does have what it takes to play for United. The problem lies in the fact that he is a very injury prone player which makes more of a liability compared to the times when he is an asset - and after six seasons, it is time United cut their losses.

Another problem is that he needs a run of games to regain his match fitness and form but every time he does get a couple of matches under his belt, more often than not he tends to pick up an injury. This vicious cycle tends to repeat itself time and again. 

If anyone has watched Anderson play at his best, they cannot deny that he is a quality player. His energy and dynamism in the middle is incredible. He is strong and is able to hold or shield the ball well. Lastly he has the capability to play match winning thru passes to his forward line. Sadly his top performances do not come as often as United fans would like.

Perhaps Anderson is ill suited to the physicality of the premiere league and should not remain in England to avoid the injuries that have been haunting him. Once touted as a speedy and skilful dribbler and passer of the ball, his development has been severely affected and he may never live up to his potential. 

For these reasons, United should look to offload him once the season is over. Currently he is only a fringe player and could very well prosper in another league. He does not lack the quality as player, but it seems like the Premier League is not a place for Anderson.
