Brazilian midfielder Anderson could finally end his frustrating spell at Manchester United, as Benfica look to take advantage of his lack of playing time, according to the Metro

The 24-year-old has left Manchester United fans bemused at his seemingly stop-start Old Trafford career that has seen him in and out of the United first-team – with Sir Alex Ferguson reportedly in the market for a midfielder, Anderson could see himself surplus to requirements.

The former Porto midfielder only made ten Premier League appearances this season due to a knee injury that kept him out for most of the season, and it's from Portugal that interest in Anderson is coming from. However, with the Brazilian international having three years left to run on his contract, Sir Alex is unlikely to let him go cheap.

Benfica are reportedly interested in taking the Brazilian as they line-up a replacement for star Axel Witsel who is rumoured to be departing the club, and its being reported that Anderson fits the bill.

In recent days Manchester United have been linked with a host of central-midfielders, with targets in Portugal such as James Rodriquez and Joao Moutinho – both are rumoured to eager to play in the Premier League.
