Nani agrees terms with Fenerbahce exit ahead of Manchester United exit: Round-up

Football News

Manchester United seem to have finally offloaded Nani, with the Portuguese winger agreeing terms with Fenerbahce.

The Guardian report that the Red Devils are discussing a fee with the Turkish club and that a deal should be completed sooner rather than later.

Nani joined Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon back in 2007 in a combined deal with Anderson worth £30 million, and went on to make 230 appearances for the club. The 29-year-old was shipped out on loan back to Lisbon last summer as part of Marcos Rojo's £16 million switch to Old Trafford.

According to the Guardian, Manchester United are yet to agree a fee with Fenerbahce and are holding out for around €5 million before giving the deal the green light. Fenerbahce sporting director, Guiliano Terraneo, has travelled to Portugal to go over final details with the player’s agent and persuaded Nani to make the move despite initial reservations.

One possible hold up for the deal is that Manchester United want the fee to be negotiated in sterling because of the favourable exchange rate, while Fenerbahce are pushing or Euros.

Manchester United resigned to losing David de Gea

Manchester United officials believe David de Gea is 100 percent certain to join Real Madrid this summer even if talks between the two clubs drag on well into August, reports Goal.

De Gea informed the Red Devils in early June that he would not be extending his contract beyond 2016 and that he has his heart set on a move to the Spanish capital.

While talks with Real Madrid have been progressing slowly, United have since given up their own attempts to keep the goalkeeper at Old Trafford.

Muller pleased with Manchester United transfer speculation

Thomas Muller has once more moved to dismiss transfer speculation that he could leave Bayern Munich amidst reported interest from Manchester United.

The German international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford to work under former Bayern boss Louis van Gaal since he took over in Manchester last year.

However the World Cup winner penned a new long-term contract last summer to put any rumours any rumours of a switch to the Premier League to bed - and now he's spoken out about the speculation.

"When a transfer request comes in, you automatically deal with it," he told Bild. "A request from another big club is an honour and a telling reward that one's performances are good. But I feel good at Bayern and my deal runs until 2019. It's better to ignore speculation [such as Manchester United talk]."

Is Nani the worst signing of the Sir Alex Ferguson era?
