Greek champions Panathinaikos are ready to rekindle their interest in Manchester United midfielder Anderson according to local reports from the country. The Super League side have recently endured a poor spell, which culminated in the sacking of coach Nikos Nioplias and his replacement by Jesualdo Ferreira – and this has once again brought up Anderson’s name.

Ferreira, a former Benfica coach, has reportedly given his approval for Panathinaikos to pursue the Brazilian midfielder and the Greek side have contacted super agent Jorge Mendes to test the waters for a potential transfer. 

Panathinaikos are keen to agree a deal with United which would see Anderson head to Greece on loan until the end of the season, with the Greens having the option to purchase the player at the end of the campaign. Whether Sir Alex Ferguson will be prepared to consent to Anderson’s departure remains to be seen, but the Greek side will be an attractive proposition for the Brazilian.
