Manchester United star emerges as Roma target

Published Add your comment

Manchester United winger Luis Nani is reportedly wanted by Roma, with the Italian club hoping to fund a move for the Portugal international by selling Pablo Osvaldo to Premier League outfit Fulham.

According to the Daily Star, Roma manager Rudi Garcia has identified Nani as a potential acquisition although a potential move for the player is dependant on whether Osvaldo completes his transfer to Craven Cottage.

Roma are prepared to let Osvaldo leave the Stadio Olimpico, although only if a club are willing to meet the £11 million valuation placed on the head of the 27-year-old Italy international.

Southampton have already seen a bid rejected for Osvaldo, although Fulham are reported to remain keen on acquiring the services of the striker before the transfer deadline next month.

The completion of a deal for Osvaldo will leave Roma in a financial position where they are able to formalise their interest in Nani, who faces an uncertain future as a Manchester United player.

Wilfried Zaha's arrival at Old Trafford and good form during pre-season leaves Nani with a fight on his hands if he hopes to reclaim a place in the Manchester United first-team, having seen his role reduced last season.

The 26-year-old has made 212 appearances for Manchester United since joining the club from Sporting six years ago, during which time he has scored 40 goals for the Premier League champions.
