Juventus are applying pressure in order to push through a move for Manchester United star Nani, according to Italian source Corriere dello Sport.

Reports emerged last week that the general director of the Serie A champions, Beppe Marotta, was in England to hold talks over the availability of both Nani and out of favour Chelsea man Kevin de Bruyne.

And now it’s claimed that Marotta is ready to step up the intent to bring a new playmaker to the Turin side, with Nani seen as the most viable option.

Despite the fact that the Portuguese winger penned a lucrative new five-year-deal in September he’s been actively linked with the exit door at Old Trafford, with a mooted fee of around £18million rumoured to be enough to convince David Moyes to sell.

Juve boss Antonio Conte has laughed off speculation connecting his side with Nani, who has largely been disappointing this season, but sources in Italy have confirmed that Marotta is serious about the prospect of bringing in a creative spark.

A number of targets have been named alongside Nani, including the aforementioned De Bruyne and Tottenham’s Erik Lamela.
