Manchester United outcast Anderson has revealed that his Old Trafford career is almost over, reports The Sun.
The Brazilian ace, who was sent out on loan to Italian outfit Fiorentina in the January transfer window, believes that he wasn't given much of a chance to impress under David Moyes this season.
And now, with his Manchester United contract set to come to an end in the summer of 2015, the midfielder has set his sights on staying in the Serie A.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, the Manchester United star said: “To be honest I’ve not had the chance. He gave me one chance or a half but not a lot.
“He is the manager and I have to respect him. He treated me well and he has a lot of players. I have to play and have my chance. It is better for me at Fiorentina.
“The manager wants me and has shown his trust, I can show him my football.”
“Even though the contract is only on loan, I want to stay for a long time.”
However Anderson doesn't believe Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement is an excuse for the club's poor season so far.
The Premier League champions currently sit in seventh place in the league and are seven points behind rivals Liverpool, who occupy the final Champions League place.
The Brazilian continued by saying: Manchester United changes all the time.
“Even with Alex Ferguson there were changes. I hope they can succeed this season and overcome this period.”
Manchester United now turn their attention to this weekend's clash with Fulham as they look to climb the Premier League table. David Moyes' side will be hoping to get back to winning ways after suffering their eighth league defeat of the season against Stoke City in their last fixture.
