Manchester United's £18m star could leave this week

Published Add your comment

Manchester United winger Nani could be set to leave the club this week and complete a move to La Liga, reports suggest.

According to the Daily Mail, the Portuguese international could join Valencia in the coming days if Peter Lim - a businessman from Singapore - is successful with his takeover of the Spanish outfit.

Those same reports further suggest that if Lim is indeed successful, then he has pledged to make €50 million available for the club to spend during the January transfer window - with Nani targeted as one of the first buys of such a spree.

27-year-old Nani joined Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon during the summer of 2007 after showing enormous potential in the Primeira Liga at Estádio José Alvalade. 

Although his subsequent seven-year stint at Old Trafford has been littered with occasional moments of brilliance, Nani has mostly frustrated Manchester United fans in recent seasons - making just eight appearances in the Premier League under David Moyes in 2013/14.

His future has been the subject of speculation for some time now, with Serie A champions Juventus having been linked with a potential £18 million move for his services in recent weeks.

Sporting have also been mentioned in connection with a potential loan switch for their former star, but it seems somewhat unlikely that Manchester United would be willing to consider such a move if Valencia do indeed come in with a sizeable bid.
