Manchester United manager David Moyes is keen to sell midfielder Anderson in the January transfer window, according to the Daily Star.
It's reported that United want to recoup £8m for the 25-year-old, who the Red Devils purchased for £27m in 2007.
Anderson has failed to establish himself as a first-team regular at Old Trafford - and has made just two starts since Moyes was appointed as Sir Alex Ferguson's successor in the summer.
Once billed as one of the most exciting young footballers in Europe, Anderson has failed to fulfil his potential and now appears to have run out of chances to impress at Old Trafford.
A Manchester United source reportedly told the Daily Star: "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."
Anderson's departure would free up his £60,000-a-week wages and allow Moyes to invest in another central midfielder when the transfer window reopens.
