Anderson wants to link up with Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas, according to Greg Stobart at Goal.com.
"The 25-year-old made a beeline for Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas after United's 2-2 November draw in north London to ask about a potential transfer to White Hart Lane," Stobart wrote.
"[Spurs] have no desire to add the former Porto man to a midfield that boasts Paulinho, Sandro, Mousa Dembele and Etienne Capoue."
Why Anderson Might Want AVB
Both speaking Portuguese will be a big advantage.
Perhaps Villas-Boas will be inclined to give Anderson games as a No. 10, his natural position, as opposed to throwing him into midfield.
What Anderson Should Do
He must join a team that will play him in the No. 10 role.
He should humble himself by signing with Rayo Vallecano, a team that play possession-orientated football.
Rayo average the second highest possession per game in La Liga at 62.2 percent, and are looking for a talisman like Anderson to help the club avoid relegation.
