Anderson denies he's joining Manchester City

Manchester United outcast Anderson has insisted that his Instagram account was hacked after he seemingly revealed that he was joining Manchester City.

As reported by The Manchester Evening News, the Brazilian midfielder - who was shipped out on loan to Italian outfit Fiorentina last season - would have shocked fans with the surprising message regarding a transfer to his side's rivals. 

The message read: "I am pleased to announce that next season I will be playing for Manchester City #bluemoons."

Unsurprisingly, though, the message wasn't sent from the Manchester United man, as he quickly deleted it and said: "My Instagram was hacked."

It certainly looks extremely unlikely that the midfielder will join Manchester City for the 2014/15 campaign, but it remains to be seen as to which club he will be plying his trade for next season. 

Anderson has had a difficult couple of years at The Theatre of Dreams, having struggled with form and fitness for some time now.

With Louis van Gaal now in charge of Manchester United, many changes are expected at the club this summer. The likes of Kevin Strootman, Jordy Clasie and Bastian Schweinsteiger have all been linked with a move to the Red Devils ahead of the up coming transfer window, which will raise further doubts over the future of Anderson.

It certainly looks set to be a busy summer for Anderson and Co. at Manchester United.
