Brazilian midfielder Anderson has revealed that he has previously tried to leave Manchester United.

Anderson has had a tough time since joining United in 2007 with indifferent form and injuries the story of his spell. The much loved Brazilian famously fled to Brazil in January 2010, with stories that a move to Vasco De Gama was on the cards, but later returned to the club.

Speaking to Globo Esporte about a move back to Portugal, the Brazilian said:

 “What can I say? I have three more years of contract, I have tried to leave many times and never succeeded to do so.”

This season Anderson has again shown he is capable of holding down a position in United’s midfield, and whilst injury has again thwarted his attempts, uncertainty about Fletcher as well as the retirement of the likes of Giggs and Scholes could see the 24 year old’s become a more prominent player for Sir Alex.

    Am sorry but the odd truth is,Sir Alex Ferguson ignores too many planters who then becomes fed up.Look at Zeki Dryers,Paul Pogba,Anderson and even Kagawa.Chelsea bought Hazard and sent him straight into frequent first team football.How doeas Alex Ferguson do that?.Pogba became ripe at an early stage and needed football when Scholes retired but Sat never gave him that.Look at Pogba now.How can Kagawa get his touches back when he’s not playing regularly.I mean no disregard but Tom Cleverly shouldn’t be playing for United.Its a shame we keep letting good midfielers go because Fergie doesn’t value.Look at Jack Whilshare-he was given the chance by Wenger and Cleverly is not even good enough to lace Whilshare’s boots.Now Wandoo is also fed up.Kagawa would be next.

    he actually DID NOT SAY THAT – a lot of Brazilians have confirmed a ´loss in translation´ … good player btw, hardly be more then a squad player for us though
