Manchester United must offer Nani to sign Juventus midfielder

Published 3 Comments

Manchester United remain keen on signing long-term target Claudio Marchisio but must offer Nani in exchange to convince Juventus to sell, reports Tuttosport.

The Italian midfielder has been on the radar of Old Trafford officials for over a year with the same publication claiming that Manchester United were obsessed with signing the player at the end of last season.

David Moyes was repeatedly knocked back in his attempts, according to the Italian source, but was buoyed by comments from the player himself, who admitted he was flattered by their apparent interest.

He was quoted as saying in June: "I'd look around and I would be ready to consider any offers. I read the interest of Manchester United and Monaco: in these cases, I'd be proud."

Now it is being reported that Moyes is looking to make a fresh attempt to bring the midfielder to Old Trafford in the January transfer window.

However, the Manchester United manager faces a fight to sign the 27-year-old, with Juventus wanting a big offer in exchange for his signature.

Not only are Juventus looking for serious money, they would also want United's Portuguese winger Nani included in any deal.

Nani was linked with a move to Turin in the summer but Manchester United opted to keep him, tying him down to a long-term five year contract.

But he has still failed to establish himself under Moyes and continues to be linked with a move away.
