Manchester United midfielder Anderson insists that he is happy to fight for his place at the club and has dismissed reports linking him with a move to Portugal in the January transfer window.
The Brazilian has now been at Old Trafford for five years and has impressed on occasions, but been inconsistent in his time in the English Premier League.
The 24-year-old has also been plagued by injuries of late and has become frustrated by sitting on the sidelines.
With players such as Tom Cleverley looking as though they may be ahead of him the pecking order, doubts over Anderson’s future but he seems happy to fight for his place at United.
The former Porto star said that if he were to return to Portugal, it would only be to play for the team that used to employ him – anyone other than that, then he is not interested.
Porto are not likely to make an offer though as they have plenty of midfielders to call upon right now, so Anderson must try to impress Sir Alex Ferguson this campaign and nail a regular starting place in the Red Devils side.
If he does not manage that, then at his age, he is likely to go and search for first-team football.
