Man Utd boss Moyes hoping to offload Anderson and Young
Thursday 05 December 2013
Out-of-favour duo Ashley Young and Anderson are among the players that Manchester United manager David Moyes is looking to offload during the January transfer window, writes the Daily Mirror.
The Scot is hoping to trim his squad in the coming months, possibly to make way for potential signings, with Borussia Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogen reportedly among his list of targets. Securing permanent moves for Anderson and Young is his preference, but Moyes would be content with loan deals should he be unable to do so.
Anderson has spent over six years at Old Trafford, but throughout that time he has struggled to live up to his £24m price tag. 51 of 177 Man Utd appearances have come as a substitute, and he scored just nine goals despite being part of four title winning sides. So far this season, he is yet to complete a full 90 minutes for the Red Devils.
Signed from Aston Villa in the summer of 2011, Young made a good start to his Man Utd career, and has been a first-team regular. However, since the Manchester derby in September, he has not started a single game, calling his future into question.
