End of the line for the Brazilian midfielder?
Anderson has been told he can leave Manchester United following a furious fall-out with manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
It is understood the Brazilian reacted badly after he was dropped for the season curtain raiser Community Shield defeat to Chelsea, after losing his place in the starting XI to Irish youngster Darron Gibson.
And the former Porto star reportedly refused to back down when reprimanded by Ferguson after the Wembley clash, incensing the Old Trafford chief.

It appears that Sir Alex has lost patience with Brazilian midfielder Anderson and could be about to swing the axe on the 21 year old, which would be a real shame.
In his first season at Old Trafford the former Gremio man was a revelation, passing all expectations and making it nigh on impossible for the boss to leave him out and in a way his ability to fit in so fast may have been his own downfall. In that first term he played in 38 matches, remember he was still just a teenager then. He was awesome and had the ability to marshal the midfield as well as push on forward and link well with the attack. His second season, last term he wasn’t quite in the same league.
His performance in the Champions League final summed up the season for him. He was all over the place and at the same time almost invisible. Now Ferguson wants to bring him back a little and play him sparingly but the youngster isn’t happy with that, so this could well spell disaster for the former Porto man. It would be sad to see him go but if he isn’t willing to play but the manager’s rules he will have to leave.
