Italian giants set to swoop for Premier League star

| 24.06.2014

Since the dismissal of David Moyes and the appointment of Louis van Gaal Manchester United have been linked with more football players than Danielle Lloyd.

According to newspaper reports Ander Herrera is on the cusp of a move to Old Trafford, while most of the Dutch national side have been linked with following suit.

However, little has been made of the future prospects of those that remain at the club but Inter Milan are looking to put an end to that by upping their interest in Portuguese winger Nani.

The former Sporting Lisbon star has done what Cristiano Ronaldo has failed to do so far – score in Brazil – and the admiring glances he’s been receiving from the Serie A giants are set to turn into a concrete £12m bid.

New Red Devils boss Van Gaal is reported to have offered Nani a career lifeline at United but if the rumours are to be believed and a new era of talent is to arrive at Old Trafford some players will have to move on to balance the squad.

After a horrendous campaign last time out Nani is one of a few players not to have seen his stock too dramatically impacted and Van Gaal would be wise to shift the wide man on before his valuation falls even further below the £18m or so the Red Devils shelled out in 2007.

Nani has always promised to be on the cusp of greatness at United but after seven years in the north-west the time has come to make way for fresh faces.

The winger, who is 8/1 to open the scoring in Portugal’s crunch game with Ghana, could also be joined through the United exit door by another player who failed to nail down a starting berth.

Javier Hernandez has bemoaned his status as a super sub and has been earmarked as the player to get the Ronald Koeman era off to a flying start at Southampton.
