Manchester United winger Nani looks more likely than ever to exit Old Trafford this summer, after the club agreed to a deal with Ashley Young, according to the Telegraph.
Nani has been a star for Manchester United since moving to the club from Sporting CP in 2007. But with Ji-Sung Park and Antonio Valencia starting in the Champions League final this year over Nani, and Young signing up with the club this week, Nani looks to be out of favour with Sir Alex Ferguson.
Manchester United have so far reportedly spent £32 million this summer, with Phil Jones signing alongside Young. And if David De Gea signs for the reported £18 million fee that United have ‘committed to’, Ferguson’s spending tally will move into the vicinity of £50 million.
With this in mind, Ferguson is looking at getting rid of any players who he doesn’t feel will feature in a revamped United squad, and Nani will be a good sale for the Manchester United manager to collect some cash and consolidate the summer’s losses.
Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan have all been strongly connected with Nani in the past, and the signing of Young will boost the sides' chances of securing the Portugal international’s signature.
But Nani won’t come cheap, with a £30 million price tag over his head as the Italian clubs circle.
