Manchester United midfielder Anderson could be a surprise target for Italian champions Juventus in January, according to talkSPORT.

The Brazilian has not enjoyed the best of times at Old Trafford since signing for the club for £20m in the summer of 2007 after emerging as one of the most exciting young players in the world during his time with Porto, and may now be out of the first-team picture at the club under new manager David Moyes.

The Scot moved to sign Marouane Fellaini from Everton on transfer deadline day, spending £27.5m on the Belgian midfielder having also targeted the likes of Ander Herrera and Cesc Fabregas as reinforcements for his side in that position.

All of this points to Anderson’s future at the club coming to an end, and it is thought that Juventus are keen to try their luck at re-igniting his career in Italian football, after they successfuly lured away Paul Pogba from the Red Devils last year.

Pogba, 20, had failed to break into United’s starting lineup, and has gone on to find great form for Juventus, being a key player in their second consecutive title win last season.

Anderson may still be a player with great potential, but United may feel he has had his chance to prove himself in over six years with the club.
