Soccer: Man Utd's Anderson has Fiorentina medical (ANSA) - Rome, January 17 - Manchester United's Brazilian midfielder Anderson was in Florence on Friday to do a medical in view of a move to Serie A side Fiorentina.

The 25-year-old has been at United for seven years, although he has not been able to secure a regular first-team slot due to inconsistent form and some injury problems.

Fiorentina are looking to reinforce their squad in the January transfer window to strengthen their bid to finish in the top three and qualify for the Champions League.

They are currently fourth in Serie A at the season's half-way stage with 37 points, 15 behind leaders Juventus and five behind third-placed Napoli.
