Manchester United winger Nani has insisted that the club have a 'good chance' of signing Portuguese midfielder William Carvalho, reports the Daily Mail.
Nani, who is currently out on loan at Sporting Lisbon, has hailed his fellow countryman, insisting that he is a 'great player' and may well be prepared to play in the Premier League next season.
There's no doubt about it, Carvalho has gone from strength-to-strength in recent time and looks set for a bright future in the game, but it remains to be seen as to whether the Red Devils make a move for his services.
In fact, Carvalho has been linked with a move to England's elite division for some time now, with United's Premier League rivals Arsenal having been credited with interest in a £20m move for the midfield ace.
However, Nani believes Carvalho could join Manchester United this summer, if the club are interested in making a move for him.

Speaking to BT Sport about Carvalho ahead of his side's showdown with Porto on Sunday, Nani said: "He is a great player.
"He has a lot of quality. I think at the end of this season he will be prepared to play in the Premier League. I think if Manchester United are interested it's a good chance."
It remains to be seen as to whether Van Gaal adds to his midfield options this summer, with the club still seemingly in need of improvement.
Despite the likes of Ander Herrera and Daley Blind having signed for the club this past summer, the Red Devils still seem to be missing a tough-tackling midfielder in the mould of Carvalho.
Carvalho, then, would no doubt prove a good signing for the Red Devils, so a deal may well be possible. At just 22-years-old, Carvalho is only going to improve over the coming years and should move to the Premier League sooner rather than later.
United have missed a midfield powerhouse for some time, so the club should look to get the deal done this summer. Van Gaal will surely the splash the cash once again in the next transfer window, and signing a dominant midfielder and improving the club's back-line has to be a priority for the Dutchman.
