Man Utd Transfer News: Boss Confirms Winger Interest

By on August 18, 2012

With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Nani is linked with a move.

Man utd Nani

Zenit St Petersburg coach Luciano Spalletti has confirmed the club is interested in signing Manchester United winger Nani.

Nani can no longer consider himself a first team regular at Old Trafford with boss Sir Alex Ferguson seemingly seeing Ashley Young and Antonia Valencia as his two main wingers.

The Portuguese international could find his first-team chances dented further by the arrivals of Robin van Persie and Shinji Kagawa this summer, so the 25-year-old may be open to the idea of a move.

Reports last week suggested Zenit St Petersburg were keen on luring him to Russia and coach Luciano Spalleti has confirmed his interest but insists they wont be paying over the odds.

‘The news about Nani is true,’

‘Everything will depend on how much players cost because we won’t pay excessive amounts of money.’

Spalletti is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail.

He was then asked if he had tabled a bid and the Zenit boss confirmed they had made an offer to United but hadn’t spoken to the player as yet:

“I’m not talking about an offer to a particular player, but an offer to a club.’

‘If the club won’t sell a player, then there’s no thought of making an offer to the player himself.’

While Manchester United may be willing to sell Nani this summer, it remains to be seen whether the player would be open to a move to Russia. The chances are Nani would reject it, so Spalletti will have his work cut out trying to persuade him to move to Russia.

    Nani should not be sold!!!!!!!!SAF,be very careful in letting NaNi out cos we see him the best of the 3 wingers concerned.He can take opponents one on one with no any other in the team’s midfield except for old giggs.Nani,we love you n we love SAF.United for ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    sir dont eva dream of selling Nani again. Nani is the only dribbler i recognised in United, evenself, he is better than Valencia and Young. Sir cant all the calibres of player in Mancity? City just parked dem enuf. So 4get dat idea of selling Nani out of United, and think of buying oda world class dribblers

    glad to see every1 wantin luis nani to stay and know he has quality 😛 sure he has an off game but so do all players, i think the problem is that every1 saw ronaldo and put all this pressure on him and well if u see his stats, theyre quite impressive. Plus even if he does mistakes (like every1 else), u can see hes always playing positive and trying to make something happen.
    so cmon stay nani 😛
