Brazilian has struggled badly to win a regular starting berth in the Red Devils midfield.
Premier League strugglers Fulham are eyeing up a cheeky loan swoop for unsettled Manchester United midfield player Anderson when the winter transfer window opens again for business in the new year, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The occasional Brazil international has fallen out of favour with the Premier League champions’ new head coach David Moyes of late after initially being selected to play in central midfield by the Scot.
However, as we now approach the halfway point in the campaign, Anderson has so far appeared in just the four matches in total for the Red Devils, three of which have come in the Premier League, with the writing very much seemingly on the wall for the 25-year-old.
Anderson has been at Old Trafford now since May 2007, when the Brazilian moved to the north west from Portuguese giants FC Porto for an undisclosed transfer fee believed to be somewhere in the region of £20 million.
But in the intervening six-year period, Anderson has managed to find the back of the net on only nine occasions in total in his 174 appearances for United, including just five strikes in his 102 Premier League outings for the club.
