Italian giants target Man United winger
12 November 2011
Inter Milan, Juventus and AC Milan will all look to lure the Portuguese winger away from Old Trafford in the summer when he will have two years left on his United contract.
All three believe that the 24-year-old is looking for a new challenge after spending the last six years in England.
Nani has become one of Sir Alex Ferguson’s key performers over the past two seasons, but his form this term has been less consistent and the presence of Ashley Young, Antonio Valencia and Ryan Giggs at the club means United have no shortage of options on the flank.
Sources in Italy believe Nani can be prised away from United for around £30million.
He signed a four-year contract at Old Trafford in March 2010, but still lags behind their very top earners.
The Glazer family who own United have a policy that means they will not negotiate new deals with players until they are close to their final 12 months.
Wayne Rooney more than doubled his wages to £250,000-a-year when he announced his intention to leave the club last year.
United insist his case was unique because of his contribution on the pitch and his marketing value off it.
