22 year-old Manchester United midfielder Anderson is set to leave Old Trafford in January.
Anderson – are Newcastle interested in this player?
The Brazilian (full name Anderson Luís de Abreu Oliveira) cannot get a game at Man United and the youngster has decided he needs to move on to restart his career, and would you believe that Newcastle United are said to be interested, along with Greek side Panathinaikos.
Anderson has only started two games so far this season, but the player is still young at just 22, and has already played 105 times for the Red Devils after signing for them from Porto in 2007.
But before today the only club that seemed to be interested in the player was Panathinaikos, and their manager Jesualdo Ferreira is keen to sign the player and worked with him at Porto.
We’re not sure why Newcastle would be interested in this midfielder, other than he’s an excellent player who is still very young and comes with vast experience, having already played 8 times for Brazil, and 161 first class games with 13 goals.
And the fee Man United paid Porto was announced by the Portuguese club as €30M back in July, 2007, and his contract runs out in 2012, so if the fee is anywhere near that amount then count Newcastle out.
