A return to Portugal could be on for Manchester United midfielder Anderson.

The Manchester Evening News says players and the manager tell us that what they see in training every day has not really transferred itself to the pitch.

The smiling South American just cannot seem to jam a foot in the midfield door and keep it there.

The games when he's a pivotal figure are too few and far between and completing 90 minutes continues to be a problem for him. If clubs in Portugal like his former side Porto press their interest in the summer then Anderson could be on his way.
