Manchester United midfielder Anderson joins Internacional

According to BBC Sport, Brazilian side Internacional have signed long-serving Manchester United midfielder Anderson on a free transfer.

The 26-year-old joins on a four-year deal, ending a seven-year association with the Red Devils in the process. He was a regular in his first few years at the club, but problems with his weight, coupled with injuries, limited his playing time with Manchester United.

His sale was inevitable, but few clubs paid an interest in the midfielder which meant he remained at Old Trafford longer than anticipated. Fiorentina took the Brazilian on loan in January 2014, but didn’t make the deal permanent in the summer.

He will go down as an expensive flop, considering former manager Sir Alex Ferguson paid £26M in 2007 for the ex-Porto man, and him leaving on a free transfer at the age of 26 is very disappointing for the club.

Anderson never forced his way into the Brazil national team on a regular basis, but has made eight caps. He’ll be hoping his time spent with Internacional can see him resurrect some form.
