After an unsuccessful loan spell at Fiorentina this year, Anderson is living on borrowed time at Manchester United and it looks like a case of when, not if, he will leave Old Trafford.
Tonight on Instagram, Anderson dropped the bombshell that he was going to follow in the footsteps of Owen Hargreaves and join Manchester City this summer.
Unfortunately, he was hacked.
I say unfortunately because Anderson joining City would have been great for two reasons.
Not only would Anderson’s wage be freed up on our books but City would be given a crocked midfielder, but it’s not to be.
False alarm aside, it does look like a matter of time before Anderson leaves and with Santos reportedly sending over representatives to negotiate a loan deal for Anderson, he may soon be back in Brazil.
