The 25-year-old, who cost the Red Devils a whopping £20m, is expected to tie up a loan move until the end of the season.
And this picture, released by La Viola and tweeted by the always excellent Sport Witness, reveals, Fiorentina may be getting more than they bargained for with the Brazilian star.
The midfielder has taken plenty stick about his weight since arriving at Manchester United from Porto in 2007 and as the image reveals, Anderson is certainly chunkier than your average professional footballer.
But it might be unfair to call the goal-shy star fat. Perhaps ‘stocky’ or ‘pigeon chested’ are better descriptions…
Anderson has made just four league appearances for new United boss David Moyes.
