Having come into his own this season, has outlined his intentions to stay at Manchester United for as long as possible.

Anderson’s time at the club has been one of ups and downs and he was linked with a move away from the club last January after apparently going AWOL and last summer whilst injured he was involved in a car crash that further lead people to believe his time was up at Old Trafford but Anderson has knuckled down and the team has benefited and now he plans to emulate legends like of and :

“I want to make history here, I look at players like Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes and I want to do what they have done.”

Always positive to hear players say these kinds of things but he has a long way to match either, lagging behind on 116 appearances compared to Giggs’ 857 and Scholes’ 659.

Whilst he intends on staying at United for as long as possible he has revealed Brazil remains in his heart and he does intend to see out his final days at his first club Gremio,

“I want to remain here until just before the end of my career. Then I hope to return to Brazil and finish my career with Gremio.”
