Italians line up Man United ace for £20m

nani.jpgManchester United fans inside the Football Transfer Tavern have been speculating on the future of Nani for quite some time, and Jamie Sanderson of Metro reckons he has an idea where the Portuguese winger may end up.

Italian giants Juventus are reportedly weighing up a bid for the player who has just one year left on his current deal and is stalling over an extension.

Russian duo Zenit St Petersburg and Anzhi Makhachkala have also made enquiries about the 26-year-old, although it is thought Juventus are the only club taking a serious liking for the player.

Manchester United have promising winger Wilfried Zaha arriving in the summer, and have been linked with a number of other attacking options – meaning Nani is likely to struggle for first team football next season.

Since joining Manchester United in 2007, he has gone from being brilliant one week to frustrating the next, and it appears Sir Alex Ferguson may have finally run out of patience with his inconsistent displays.

Nani’s agent Jorge Mendes is understood to have already met with Juventus officials, who are preparing a £20 million bid for the wingers services according to Portuguese paper A Bola.

Sir Alex Ferguson has often stated his desire to keep the player at Old Trafford trying to coax the best out of him week in, week out – but admits being unable to assure him regular first team football is likely to force him out of the club.
