Manchester United plan to grant Anderson a free transfer in January. The Daily Mail says United misfit Anderson is being pursued by clubs in Brazil who believe he can leave Old Trafford early on a free transfer.
The Brazilian midfielder is out of contract in the summer and free to talk to foreign clubs in January.
Flamengo wanted to sign him in August but could not agree a wage package on top of a fee.
His first club Gremio, however, are considered favourites this time and have held tentative discussions with United happy to let him go.
They hope United will waive a nominal transfer fee in January to simply get Anderson off their books quickly.
