New Fiorentina signing Anderson claims "lots" of Manchester United players, including Nani, "want out" of Old Trafford.

Anderson joined the Florence-based side on loan until the end of the season earlier this month, and the midfielder has no intention of returning in the summer.

The Brazilian, appearing at a press conference, insisted he was "here to stay" - and if his words are to be believed, he is not the only player keen on leaving the Barclays Premier League champions.

Nani only signed a new five-year contract last summer, but is among a host of players who want to jump ship, according to Anderson.

"I'm sure that lots of players want out, especially people like myself and Nani who have been in Manchester for seven or eight years," Anderson was quoted as saying by ESPN.

"Manchester United is a huge club, a club that does everything for its players but sometimes a footballer wants to leave just to experience a different way to play football, to learn something as well."

There is an inescapable feeling that United's squad needs a huge revamp in the summer.

Rio Ferdinand's contract expires at the end of the season, and given his lack of playing time this term, it would appear unlikely that he will renew his current deal.

Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic are coming toward the end of their contracts while question marks also hang over the likes of Nani and Javier Hernandez.
