Manchester United midfielder Anderson has revealed that he is open to leaving the club if first-team chances don't come his way.
If the Express are to be believed then the Portuguese star, who has been heavily linked with a January move away from Old Trafford, has stated that he wants to remain with the Premier League champions if possible, but will transfer to another club if he doesn't get game-time.
The Brazilian midfielder has only started twice this season under David Moyes and reports are leaning towards the idea that United want to cash in on him before his contract reaches its end in 2015.
The 25-year-old has accepted his role in the team but has also now admitted publicly that he has to play more.
"Every player wants to play every game. I am the same . I am only 25 years old, but I cannot stay one more year and not play. I need to play. But you cannot demand to play, you have to be patient and when you get your chance you have to do well.
“The club have always been nice to me and I am happy here, but if I have to go eventually then I have to go. But I will do my best for United.”
Anderson, who has rubbished talks of a loan move to Fulham, has said that he also believes he can now prove to Moyes that he belongs in his long-term plans, as his injury woes are behind him.
"I feel fit now and I just need the games.
“If I had a good run of games then I could show I am the player I was in my first two seasons, the real Anderson.”
