Juve linked with fresh Nani swoop

Last Updated: Sun, 16 Feb 2014 17:44

Italian giants Juventus are thought to be lining up a move for Manchester United winger Nani this summer.

The Portuguese international is widely tipped to leave United at the end of the season after finding himself on the fringes of the first team under David Moyes' management.

Nani has been at Old Trafford since 2007, but is exploring other avenues after figuring just 10 times for the Scot and completing a full 90 minutes on just two occasions.

The 27-year-old has been on Juventus' radar for some time, and almost left for the Old Lady last summer, before surprisingly opting to sign a new contract with United.

Even Moyes' predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson, who signed him for £25.5m form Sporting Lisbon, seemed reluctant to use him during his final season in charge of the reigning Premier League champions, so news of his new five-year deal last September came as something of a shock to most observers.

Injury problems have hampered his involvement under Moyes, with a nose concern forcing him to miss most of the pre-season, while a knee complaint has sidelined him more recently since December.

Juventus' director general of the Italian side Giuseppe Marotta told Tuttosport: "Our strategy is to add quality players ever year."
