David Moyes is back in management and will be desperate to prove his critics wrong after a disastrous tenure at Manchester United.
His spell at the Red Devils proved a nightmare as United went from champions of England to a team hovering around mid-table. Now, then, Moyes faces a new challenge at La Liga outfit Real Sociedad who are in desperate need of improvement after a torrid time.
The San Sebastian based outfit have a number of top players at their disposal, however they've struggled in La Liga this season, and need to get out of trouble quickly.
Lack of funds
There's a problem though - much like the majority of La Liga - Sociedad have a lack of funds, and Moyes will struggle to add to his failing squad in the January transfer window.
But there is one man Moyes could target, and he could go back to Manchester United in order to land him...
- David Moyes to be unveiled as new Real Sociedad boss
- Van Gaal could flog United's out of favour Brazilian to PL outfit
- Manchester United will let Anderson leave for free in January
And it's not Marouane Fellaini. The Belgian international is the obvious choice, but Moyes would be wrong to bring him to Sociedad. And, in truth, he probably couldn't afford him...
If the ex-United boss really did want to return to the Theatre of Dreams, then why not go for Anderson? As mentioned, Moyes won't be handed millions to work with in the next transfer window, so perhaps he should take Manchester United's struggling Brazilian off them.
On the cheap
It certainly appears that Anderson's future at the Theatre of Dreams is coming to an end. In fact, recent reports have even suggested that the Red Devils are prepared to terminate his contract in the coming months.
Moyes, then could land him on a free in the very near future. Of course, Anderson - much like Moyes - has his critics, but he's in desperate need of a new challenge.
And perhaps he could shine in Spain under a manager that knows him. Moyes has talent in the middle of the park, but the likes of Esteban Granero and Markel Bargara could do with competition. Anderson could be the man to provide that.
He needs a chance
Of course, he must find his fitness and attempt to hit top form on a consistent basis, but he's clearly in need of a new challenge. At Sociedad, then, he could be handed the lifeline that he's so desperately in need of.
Anderson is full of talent and may well shine at a club attempting to find their way once again. In truth, the Brazilian is similar to Sociedad and Moyes...they're all in need of a chance.
