After comments attributed to Anderson within the past year, with him apparently claiming he was interested in a move to Inter Milan, our Brazilian has today claimed he sees himself at United for a long time.

He believes this is just the beginning of his time at the club, as he strives to follow the example set by our veterans.

“I am sure that this is only the beginning of my career in Manchester,” said Anderson. “I have everything to make history here and will not waste this chance. I want to be remembered in the future as Anderson of Manchester United. For this, I must follow the examples of players like Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville.”
