Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain are reportedly looking to improve their wide options this summer, and have been linked with a move for Manchester United’s Nani after missing out on Gareth Bale.
The Daily Express has reported that Nani is now PSG’s top target, while the French side are also reportedly interested in Real Madrid’s Angel di Maria.
Nani is reported to be the more likely target for the defending champions however, with the attacker being EU eligible while Di Maria, a Argentinian native, is not.
This would not be a problem for the club, except the French side have already filled their non-EU slots for the upcoming season, meaning if the club were to sign the Argentinian winger, someone would have to leave the side.
Nani therefore has become the Ligue 1 defending champions’ top target, and the French side believe they can capture the Portuguese international for a fee of around £8.5 million, according to the Daily Express report.
The winger, who joined the Red Devils in 2007, has stated his desire to win another Premier League title with the club after the Portuguese man helped the Red Devils to their second title in three seasons last year.
The 26-year-old, however, only made 10 Premier League appearances for the club last season, while falling out of favour with the retired Sir Alex Ferguson as he battled through injury problems.
The defending Ligue 1 champions have already made three major signings this summer, adding Napoli striker Edinson Cavani, Lille left-back Lucas Digne, and Roma centre-back Marquinhos, and could make Nani the club’s fourth major signing to complete their summer.
Meanwhile, United are still looking to make their first major addition after seeing multiple approaches rejected for Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas, who the club made their number one priority this summer.
