In connection with the symmetry-breaking phenomena found in cuprate superconductors, we check whether an anisotropy spontaneously appears or not in strongly correlated electrons that exhibit superconductivity and/or antiferromagnetism. A variational Monte Carlo method is applied to the square-lattice Hubbard model (U/t = 12) with diagonal transfer t′. In the trial wave function used, we introduce band renormalization factors including adjustable parameters for the anisotropy corresponding to the fourfold rotational symmetry breaking. It is confirmed that the anisotropy appears in the overdoped regime, where the Fermi-liquid features are predominant. In the underdoped area, the anisotropy does not appear for t′/t = 0 and +0.3, whereas it possibly appears in the underdoped regime for t′/t = -0.3.
