Nani’s impressive loan spell with Sporting Lisbon last season may have given him something of a leg to stand on with regards to fighting for a place in Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United squad, but the latest rumours infer that he might well be farmed out again ahead of the next campaign.
Reports emanating from Turkey suggest that Fenerbahce are in negotiations with the player’s representatives over a loan move that would see him spend another year away from Old Trafford. It’s early days yet but it doesn’t look like Nani has a place in Van Gaal’s plan for the future.

Kane flattered by interest
Elsewhere Tottenham’s Harry Kane has made a statement sure to be of interest to all Red Devils fans, insisting that he’s flattered by the purported interest being shown in his signature by United. Recent reports have pegged Kane at a hefty £40m, meaning a deal is unlikely this summer. That said we’d like to add that nothing is impossible.
Given how prolific Kane was last term he’s certainly one of the hottest prospects around, and he might well harbour a secret interest in switching to a club more suited to giving him the opportunity to win major trophies. Only time will tell.
Vidal interest goes cold
Last but not least we to turn to a familiar figure in Arturo Vidal. However, before you start sighing in a ‘not this again’ sort of manner, we’re quite pleased to predict that the latest update doesn’t carry the news most people will be expecting.
The Chile international has been linked with Old Trafford for a number of years now but it appears his trail has gone cold following his crash whilst driving under the influence.
Judging from the pictures of the wreckage Vidal was fortunate to escape from the crash without serious injury. United, safe to say, aren’t now too keen on taking a gamble on him.
