Fiorentina will put Anderson through a medical on Friday ahead of his planned transfer from Manchester United.

The Italian Serie A club welcomed the 25-year-old Brazilian midfielder to Florence on Thursday, in anticipation of what is expected to be a loan move.

Fiorentina announced on their website that Anderson met with sporting director Daniele Prade and technical director Eduardo Macia.

Anderson, who has spent six-and-a-half seasons with the Barclays Premier League champions after joining from Porto, has dropped down the pecking order at Old Trafford under manager David Moyes.
