United price Juve out of winger chase

Published Add your comment

Juventus cannot afford to buy Manchester United winger Luis Nani, according to Bianconeri manager Antonio Conte.

Reports in Turin have suggested Juve are keen on the 24-year-old, along with Arsenal midfielder Theo Walcott and Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez.

However, with Italian football finances the way they are, Conte does not expect to be calling Sir Alex Ferguson any time soon to discuss the signing of the United star.

"We could not get Walcott, Nani or Tevez because of the finances involved," he said.

"Clubs in Italy cannot afford such prices, so we focused on young players."


Nani has picked up this season where he left the last; having ended the previous campaign with 13 goals and 17 assists for club and country.

The Portugal international already has five strikes for United to his name this term, and recently brought up century of league appearances for the Old Trafford club.
