Fulham to loan Manchester United star in January?

Published Add your comment

Out of favour Manchester United star Anderson could be targeted by Fulham in the January transfer window, according to the Mirror.

The Brazilian has found it difficult to convince David Moyes that he is worthy of a regular first-team berth and so has since his game-time significantly cut since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. 

This has prompted talk of him leaving Old Trafford in the near future, with reports of a move back to former club Porto frequently surfacing.

However now it's rumoured that Premier League strugglers Fulham- now boosted by the appointment of ex-Manchester United assistant Rene Meulensteen as head coach- could be the favourites to land him on a short-term deal.

The 25-year-old has only made two appearances so far this term, and was substituted in both, leading the Manchester Evening News to speculate that Fulham believe they can tempt him away with the promise of regular football.

Signed for £20million in 2007, Anderson has never really lived up to his billing at Old Trafford, but could provide a much-needed boost for Martin Jol's side.
