There’s some whispers around the Football Transfer Tavern this evening that indicate a new destination for one of Manchester United’s outcasts.
Metro reports that Fulham want to derail Nani’s proposed transfer to Sporting Lisbon as the Premier League strugglers attempt to strengthen their squad.
The Cottagers in the bar are still reeling following their home defeat to relegation rivals Sunderland.
Now Rene Meulensteen is looking to take drastic action to avoid a pending relegation from the Premier League.
Room will be made in the squad by letting Costa Rica midfielder Bryan Ruiz join PSV Eindhoven until the end of the campaign with a view to a permanent deal.
Ruiz, who was the club’s £10.6 million record signing three years ago, has struggled to live up to his reputation at Craven Cottage, and now Meulensteen has outlined a move for the Manchester United winger.
Sporting Libson are reportedly keen on fetching the 27-year-old back to Portugal as he continues to struggle for game time at Old Trafford.
However the prospect of staying in England where he is settled could prove to be more attractive to the Portuguese international with the aim of gaining more football before the World Cup in Brazil.
Nani is one of several players who could depart Old Trafford in the current transfer window as Moyes look to free up space to bring in new additions.
Do you think Moyes is right to let Nani leave Old Trafford? Let us know your thoughts below.
