Anderson is due to have a medical in Florence today ahead of his proposed move to Fiorentina.

The Manchester United midfielder travelled to Italy on Thursday for talks with the Serie A club's sporting director Daniele Prade.

Fiorentina posted a photograph of the talks on their website and confirmed a medical would take place today, although there was no word from the Italians on whether a loan move or permanent deal is being sought.

Anderson now appears likely to end a six-and-a-half-year association with United halfway through a frustrating season under David Moyes.

The Brazil international, who cost a reported £27m when he moved to Old Trafford from Porto in 2007, has made just four Premier League appearances since Sir Alex Ferguson's departure.

A completed transfer would be the first significant departure sanctioned by Moyes, who made midfield reinforcements a priority in the summer.

Marouane Fellaini was signed from Everton for £27m, while Cesc Fabregas and Ander Herrera were also considered.
