Former Manchester United midfielder Anderson hasn’t joined Internacional’s squad for the 2017 season’s presentation today, as he’s expected to be leaving the club soon.
After Inter’s first relegation in their history, the player’s intention was to stay at the club and fight to be back in the first division. That’s why, according to UOL and Globo Esporte, Anderson rejected three offers. These would be from Middlesbrough, Braga and a Chinese group of investors.
The problem is that Inter have no intention to keep him, wanting to rid themselves of his high wages. Now that the club have informed Anderson of their stance, things could change quickly.
Speaking to Brazilian journalist Marinho Saldanha, who has been following the situation daily, we’ve learned that Middlesbrough would still have a chance to sign the player now he’s been made aware of Internacional’s intentions.
There’s also interest from Brazil, so if Middlesbrough were ever as interested as it was claimed they were, then Aitor Karanka and co may need to get a move on.
