Manchester United may have to find another buyer for Old Trafford flop Anderson as Fiorentina are having second thoughts on signing the midfielder.

Fiorentina signed Anderson on loan in January until the end of the season with the option of signing the Brazilian on a permanent deal in the summer.

However reports in Italy suggest Fiorentina may now pull the plug on the proposed deal as Anderson has failed to set Serie A alight.

Anderson has started just four games since joining the Viola and has made three substitute appearances.

The 25-year-old had hoped to move to the Stadio Artemio Franchi in order to get some regular first-team football under his belt.

Anderson has failed to live up to his outstanding potential ever since he left Porto as an 18-year-old back in 2007.

Former manager Sir Alex Ferguson signed Anderson for around £20million as he thought the then teenager could eventually replace Paul Scholes.
