Because he's an overweight, unmotivated crock who when he does actually play runs about a headless chicken and gives the ball away repeatedly while managing to keep the alleged 'talent' that we bought him for a mystery to United fans the world over. . . But he's also Brazilian and young enough for us to possibly fool Benfica into thinking that he either is or could still become a player. Thus potentially attractive for a club to take a gamble on him in a p/x. To be honest, I'd be happy if we just sold Anderson full-stop he's neither use nor ornament as far as I can see. If Gaitan ended up coming the other way in any deal though it would make it all the better.
