Today our Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are wondering what kind of arrival celebrations Fenerbahce fans would ever throw for the likes of Lionel Messi, such was their appreciation of Nani as he arrived in Istanbul ahead of completing his transfer to Turkey.
The Portuguese international is exiting Old Trafford after an eight-year association with the Red Devils and United fans are looking on his transfer with great regret, given the talents Nani did manage to showcase on several occasions.
Unfortunately for the player himself, he did not show his talents nearly regularly enough to convince everybody that he could lessen the impact of Cristiano Ronaldo leaving Old Trafford and after a spell back on loan at former club Sporting Lisbon last term, it seems Nani’s career is winding down slowly, albeit in new adoring surroundings.
We also saw Lukas Podolski trade Arsenal for Fenerbahce’s cross-town rivals Galatasaray at the weekend and everybody in the tavern is sure that both the German international and Nani will produce the goods as big time players in the Turkish Super Lig.
But with Nani now departing, who else could be following him out of the exit doors at Old Trafford? Here’s five men who may also suffer that fate.
