Confirmed interest in Ando

This morning’s papers were filled with claims that Anderson was one of the players David Moyes was hoping to offload this transfer window.

He will be pleased to hear then that Fiorentina’s sporting director, Daniele Prade, has confirmed the club’s interest in signing Ando.

Having only started two games this season, it is clear that he is not wanted or needed by the club, but it has been reported the Brazilian would be loaned out, with a view to a permanent deal.

“Anderson is a player who Fiorentina likes and is following, but this certainly applies to many other players,” said Prade.

    Heard Moyes was in Italy today… Let’s hope he left Anderson there

    Loan deal is pointless as it just lets him run down his contract then we get fuck all. Better to sell him now and just take the loss on the money we paid for him.

    Ando used to be a good player for us. Hope he finds his way in a less brutal league.
    Good luck to him if he goes.

    Really wish we could use him in a trade, say with Juve. In anycase, getting him off the wage bill will be a boost.

    Shame really that its not worked out, He seems a likeable charichtor in the dressing room, Hope he gets his 2009 form back I thought he was terrific in that period, He had one or two injuries which has set his development back, Good luck Ando

  5. Gazzer says:

    I agree about selling him instead of loaning him out.
    I just don’t get the economics of it. It’s not as if we care about the option of having him back.
    Perhaps the idea is that if the other club love him, then they need to cough up money.
    All it does though is give them an option without having to pay a premium for it

  6. Marq says:

    Well, nobody is gonna buy Anderson if he is not fit and playing. Loaning him out is the best way to put him in the shop window

  7. Eric Nesh says:

    have always luved Ando with all my heart completely good lad and talented but just hasnt happened for him. Fiorentina seems like it wld be a perfect club for at this point in his career. Who knows he might even make /brazil squad for the summer!
