Manchester United outcast Anderson is set to leave the club in a permanent move on Monday.
The Brazilian midfielder has been out of favour at Old Trafford under both old boss David Moyes and current manager Louis van Gaal, and his eventual exit has appeared a formality for some time.
Internacional deal close
It now appears to have come to fruition, with the Daily Mail reporting that the 26-year-old is set to sign for Brazilian giants Internacional tomorrow (Monday).
The transfer deadline day move will bring to an end seven-and-a-half years with Manchester United, after Sir Alex Ferguson spent big to bring the central midfielder to the Premier League from FC Porto.
Despite making over 20 appearances in all competitions in five of his first six seasons with the club, Anderson struggled to make a name for himself at the heart of the Red Devils side and subsequently spent time on loan at Fiorentina at the end of last season.

He struggled for game time in Serie 'A' as well, and now the paper report claims Manchester United, Internacional and the player's representatives are in talks over cancelling his contract in England.
That would free him up to complete a move to South America, with the Mail going on to suggest that Anderson will be offered £25,000-a-week over four years, with an additional annual bonus of £650,000.
If all goes to plan, the eight-cap Brazil international will complete a medical on transfer deadline day and be unveiled to his new club's fans back in his homeland on Tuesday.
