According to respected Italian sources, Inter Milan are currently in talks with Manchester United over Portuguese winger Nani.
Nani has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford recently, despite the winger having signed a new five-year contract at the club last September.
The 27-year-old is a perennial almost-man, with the United faithful often frustrated by the attacker’s failure to really show his true potential, and his seven year stay in Manchester could well be coming to an end in the coming days.
Inter Milan have emerged as front-runners for his signature, with new owner Erick Thohir looking to make an early mark on the Serie A side.

Juventus had been linked with a move for the player, but the Mirror have reported that the Serie A leaders’ interest has cooled, leaving the way clear for Inter Milan to secure their man.

The signing of Juan Mata from Chelsea last week has put the former Sporting Lisbon player even further down the pecking order at United, and with Adnan Januzaj lighting up games, and Ashley Young on the way to resurrecting his Old Trafford career, the way forward for Nani may well be to negotiate a way out of Manchester this month.
What do you think? Should Nani leave? Let me know in the comments below…
