Manchester United midfielder Anderson has compounded David Moyes' woes after revealing a number of players are eager to leave Old Trafford, including Portuguese winger Nani.
The Brazilian midfielder completed a loan move to Fiorentina during the January transfer window having failed to earn a regular starting spot under the Scot and has made it clear he sees his long-term future in Florence.
Speaking in a press conference prior his first starting appearance for the Viola against Cagliari, Anderson admitted he is not alone in wanting to leave David Moyes' side.
"I am sure that lots of players want out, especially people like myself and Nani who have been in Manchester for seven or eight years," Anderson told reporters.
"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."
Nani, who arrived at Old Trafford alongside Anderson in 2007, was repeatedly linked with a move away from the club in January despite only signing a new five-year contract with the club last September.
A number of reports on transfer deadline day suggested Inter Milan had agreed a loan move for the former Sporting starlet, but a hamstring injury that has ruled the 27-year-old out for another month scuppered any hopes of a deal being concluded.
Although there has been no official confirmation from either United or Fiorentina, a number of reports suggest the Serie A club have the option to sign Anderson on a permanent basis at the end of the season. The midfielder's comments would suggest that is the case, with his focus now completely on helping Vincenzo Montella's side in their fight for Champions League qualification.
"Definitely I want to stay here," Anderson continued. "Playing in Manchester was great, it's a prestigious club with a lot of history. I was there for seven or eight years and I am thankful to be here and want to show Fiorentina my quality and fight for a spot in the starting line-up. I thank all Manchester United fans for their love, but I'm here to stay."
