Primeira Liga giants Benfica have claimed that they have no agreement in place to sign Manchester United winger Nani.

As reported by Portuguese publication Record, the Eagles have denied that they have had any contact with a view to bringing the player to the Estadio da Luz.

27-year-old Nani - who joined Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon in 2007 - has cut a very frustrated at Old Trafford in recent times, with the experienced Portugal international having been used somewhat sparingly in the Premier League.

Although he started the recent 2-0 defeat to Everton - a match that proved to be the last of David Moyes' dismal 10-month reign - Nani did not make an appearance between December and April after suffering from a niggling hamstring problem.

While it does not appear that Europa League semi-finalists Benfica are currently interested in a deal for Nani, it still would not be a shock to see the player depart Manchester United this summer.

Despite showcasing brief glimpses of his quality - as well as winning four Premier League titles and the Champions League - during his time at the club, Nani has rarely been a favourite among Manchester United fans and is generally viewed to be too inconsistent to hold down a regular starting berth.

While potential suitors are unclear, it may be that Nani has to move on soon in order to reignite his stuttering career.

However, with Manchester United currently under the interim management of Ryan Giggs following Moyes' abrupt departure, it may be that any decision on both outgoings and incomings will have to wait until a permanent replacement arrives.
