United facing Italian fight over €15m winger - reports

Published Add your comment

Juventus are set to make an offer for Manchester United winger Luis Nani, according to reports in Italy.

The Portuguese international has been linked with the Serie 'A' side on a number of occasions this summer, and both and Tuttosport report that the bianconeri are lining-up a €15 million offer for the player.

Nani joined Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon in 2007, switching to Old Trafford for a reported €25.5 million.

Named Players' Player of the Year at the Red Devils' annual awards night at the end of the season, the winger has developed into one of the key components at Manchester United, helping the club to a third Barclays Premier League triumph since his arrival.

Reports in June claimed that the Italian giants would offer considerably more for the 24-year-old, and it's unlikely that Sir Alex Ferguson will be interested in selling the player for such a loss.

Nani himself seems happy at Manchester United after staring in the club's 2-1 pre-season win over Barcelona, and is confident he can make an even bigger impact next season.


I am feeling confident for the new season and I hope to do my best and help the team win trophies.

“I will try to take my game to the next level," said the winger on conclusion of the Manchester United pre-season tour in America.

"I will try to do my best. I want to do much better than last season and now we must wait to see how that happens.”
