The Brazilian, who has not been a regular starter for Sir Alex Ferguson’s side this season despite returning to full fitness, was reported to have told Globo Esporte that he has tried to quit United in the past.
He said: “I have three more years of contract, I have tried to leave many times and never succeeded to do so.”
But the 24-year-old midfielder, whose current contract is set to expire in 2016, has now moved to clarify his comments, insisting he is happy at the Premier League leaders.
“It’s not true [about wanting to leave],” Anderson said. “Everyone knows I’m happy at the club. I’ve had a lot of injuries but I’ve never let the smile go from my face.”
