If reports in Italy are to be believed, United’s troubled Portuguese winger Nani could be on his way to Italian giants, AC Milan.
Nani’s Old Trafford career has taken a nose dive since an alledged training ground incident with Davide Petrucci some 3 weeks ago culminating in not even making the bench for the Reds in their last outing at St James’ Park.
Italian newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport reports that Nani’s agent, Jorge Mendes, is exploring the options for an escape from Fergie’s clutches, and AC Milan could move to take the United midfielder in the summer with a January transfer deal being described as “more difficult”.
Nani appears to have many suitors
with Juventus thought to be particularly keen.
Nani, who is under contract at United until 2014, is believed to be resigned to the fact his time is up at a club where he’s never quite managed to entirely win over the fans or the management.
His latest troubles in training, coupled with his obtuse contract negotiations, have seemingly left Sir Alex Ferguson with little choice but to allow Nani to leave.
