Juventus manager Antonio Conte has moved to quell speculation that the Serie A club are interested in the acquisition of Manchester United winger Luis Nani during the summer transfer window.
Nani has frequently been mentioned as a potential recruit for Juve when the transfer period begins next month given that the Portugal international has become something of a peripheral figure this season.
It is reported that Juventus are ready to formalise an £18 million bid for Nani if he is able to overcome a hamstring injury before the transfer deadline, although Conte claims to know nothing of a proposed deal for the 27-year-old.
"Nani? I'm the coach. For these things there are (director Beppe) Marotta and (sporting director Fabio) Paratici," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
Nani only signed a new long-term contract with Manchester United earlier this season but this could have been done in order for the Premier League champions to demand a more significant transfer fee were an approach to be made.
The forward has scored 41 goals in 224 appearances during his seven years as a Manchester United player.
