Anderson has insisted lots of players want to leave Manchester United including Portuguese winger Nani, in an interview he did with Fiorentina.
The 25-year-old is currently on loan with the Italian club but admitted he has no intention of returning to Old Trafford, meaning we have likely seen the last of him in a United shirt which will put an end to a seven-year association with the club.
Nani was strongly linked with a move away from United in January, despite being injured, and Anderson has singled him out as a player who wants to leave United.
He said: “I’m sure that lots of players want out, especially people like myself and Nani who have been in Manchester for seven or eight years.
“Manchester United is a huge club that does everything for their players but sometimes a footballer wants to leave just to experience a new way to play football and to learn something as well.”
Anderson came to United with Nani in the same summer back in 2007 so he’s better placed than most to know how happy he is at United. However, if Nani wanted out of United, then why did he sign a new five year deal only a few months ago? Either he is working alongside United to get the best price for him in the summer or he has changed his mind.
His indication that there are ‘lots of players’ who share that desire indicates this upcoming transfer window could see more players than fans expected leave Old Trafford in what is sure to be one of the biggest personnel shake-ups the club has ever undergone.
