Old Trafford bit-part player prepared to leave.
Manchester United flop, Anderson, has stated that he could be open to a return to Portugal with former club Porto, The Sun understands.
The Brazilian has failed to impress this term making just 17 appearances in all competitions and United are said to want to clear out some of the under performers this summer for a squad overhaul.
The 24-year-old played for the Portuguese giants for two seasons between 2005-07 before joining United for around £20 million.
Anderson told Portuguese newspaper, A Bola, recently; “I can say that Porto are the only club where I could think of going if I returned to Portugal. My past is there, and that is where my roots are.”
However, if he were to leave United can expect to receive much less than what they paid for him.
Despite falling out of favour in Manchester, the Brazilian international has wracked up a hefty list of honours during his time in England, picking up three Premier League titles, one League Cup, one Community Shield, one Champions League winners medal and one FIFA World Club Cup.
He has made 162 appearances for United, scoring nine goals as well as picking up eight caps for Brazil.
Also no stranger to controversy, in 2010 he was involved in a car accident whilst on a night out in Portugal, the car was written off and he and two other passengers were injured.
