Fiorentina’s sporting director Daniele Prade has confirmed that they are interested in signing Anderson from Manchester United.
Reports surfaced yesterday linking Anderson to the Serie A club and now Prade has admitted that the Brazilian midfielder is somebody who Fiorentina are keeping tabs on.
Speaking to Sky Italia, Prade said: “Anderson is a player who Fiorentina likes and is following, but this certainly applies to many other players.
“Fiorentina are looking a bit, but with very specific requirements. We do not buy just to buy, however, because there is positive feedback from what’s on the pitch and the group is happy.
“If the right opportunity comes, we will seize the moment. But it is useless to talk about an individual name as we have many targets, and many of these have not come out.”
Anderson hasn’t played since December 7 and hasn’t even been included in our last two match day squads, so it does look like Moyes intends to let him leave Old Trafford.
Moyes gave Anderson more minutes than any other player in the pre-season but that may have simply been so he could pass judgement on whether he felt he was good enough.
There is going to be a swathe of changes at Old Trafford in the next few transfer windows and it looks like Anderson could be one of the first to leave.
