It has been suggested that Manchester United could be set for a summer player exodus, as coach David Moyes prepares to offload several of the club’s aging/under-performing stars of years’ past. However, according to midfielder Anderson, who is currently on loan at Fiorentina in Serie A, the feeling is mutual; the Brazilian claims that many Old Trafford stars want to leave the club this summer, regardless of whether Moyes wants them out or not.
''I am sure that lots of players want out,'' Anderson, 25, said. ''Especially people like myself and Nani, who have been in Manchester for seven or eight years. Manchester United is a huge club, a club that does everything for its players, but sometimes a footballer wants to leave just to experience a different way to play football and to learn something as well.”
When pressed on his own Old Trafford future, the center midfielder indicated that he has already played his last game for the English champion. ''Playing in Manchester was great, it is a prestigious club with a lot of history,” he said. “But I was there for seven or eight years and I want to show Fiorentina my quality and fight for a spot in the starting lineup. I thank all Manchester United fans for their love, but I'm here to stay."
