Manchester United finally look set to offload Portuguese flop Luis Nani with Juventus being his most probable destination. Juventus have allegedly offered 20 million euros plus Montenegro forward Mirko Vucinic in order to land Nani. That seems like an excellent deal for United since Nani has yet to fulfill his potential and doesn’t seem like he is going to any time soon. New boss David Moyes is said to be a big fan of the ex-Sporting Lisbon winger, but he can’t afford to risk missing out on this excellent deal.
Sir Alex Ferguson bought the controversial winger from Sporting Lisbon six years ago looking to emulate the deal for Cristiano Ronaldo. Nani is no Ronaldo and never will be; he has had his chance to impress the United faithful and has failed miserably. In the right situation he could probably be a successful player, but it won’t happen at United. The emergence of child prodigy Adnan Januzaj has further pushed Nani towards the exit door.
Juventus are in need of a big name signing after crashing out of the Champions League and look to take advantage by getting rid of their own flop Mirko Vucinic. Vucinic is owed lots of money and won’t be an easy sale in today’s market. This deal seems to work out for both parties, especially United. Nani is not worth the 20 million euros Juventus seems willing to offer.
David Moyes should jump at the chance to get rid of Nani once and for all and use that money to buy some new faces that United so desperately needs. Julian Draxler and Marco Reus would be great signings if Moyes were able to get enough money from the Nani sale he could possibly pull off one of those high profile signings. United needs to get rid of Nani sooner rather than later; he will only get worse and the time to sell is now. Vucinic would also offer United another option up front which is badly needed.
