Manchester United winger Nani has made up his mind to leave the club with France and Italy being touted as his favourite destinations.
The Premier league outfit recently rejected a bid from Turkish club Galatasaray believed to be in the region of £ 8 million. It is thought that Manchester United are looking at around £ 10 million for the player, who has 12 months left on his contract. If a proposed move to Turkey does not take place, Nani is expected to wait for a bid from either Juventus or Monaco in the future.
Juventus have had a long-standing interest in the player and they are thought to be monitoring the situation. Monaco have not shown great interest in Nani up until now, but that could all change due to their failure to get Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid. After the arrival of the Russian billionaire owner, the club has already made signings in excess of £ 100 million. They have been chasing Ronaldo throughout the summer with the French giants believed to be ready to part with £ 85 million for his services.
However, Real are adamant that they will not sell Ronaldo at any price, which may prompt Monaco to look at Nani – a much cheaper option.
The Portuguese midfielder arrived at Manchester United with a reputation of being the next Cristiano Ronaldo because of their similar style of play. However, he has lacked the level of consistency required to be considered as a major player in the team, although he has delivered stunning goals and assists along the way. The £ 25 million signing could cost the huge hit in the transfer books of Manchester United, as he would fetch less than half of the money paid by the club several years ago. The 26-year-old has also fallen out with former manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
