Manchester United's £18m star approached over Juventus move

Published Add your comment

Manchester United winger Nani could be on his way out of the club prior to the close of the January window, it would appear.

According to the Daily Mirror, Italian outfit Juventus have made an approach to the player's representatives over a possible move that would see him given increased playing time ahead of this summer's World Cup in Brazil.

27-year-old Portuguese international Nani joined Manchester United from Primeira Liga outfit Sporting Lisbon back in 2007. Initially, there was a tremendous amount of hype surrounding the winger given the form of the last player the Red Devils enticed from the same source - one Cristiano Ronaldo.

However, while Nani has given supporters fleeting glimpses of his ability, too often he has totally flattered to deceive at Old Trafford and his inability to find a consistent run of form has seen him become a figure of immense frustration for Manchester United fans across the globe.

Although he only actually signed a new five-year deal to remain at the club earlier this season, speculation over a potential Manchester United exit for Nani has been rampant during the current transfer window.

Serie A champions Juventus were linked with a switch worth approximately £18 million just prior to the start of January, while former club Sporting have also been linked with a possible loan move for their former star with a view to a permanent transfer this summer.

However, it now certainly looks as if Antonio Conte's men have stolen a match on their rivals in their pursuit of Nani.
