Transfer news: Manchester United winger Nani targeted by Galatasaray - reports
The Portugal international could be one half of a swap deal that brings Wesley Sneijder to Old Trafford
Manchester United winger Nani has emerged as a target for Galatasaray, according to reports in Turkey.
The inconsistent Portugal international has fared little better under David Moyes than he did Sir Alex Ferguson, starting just two Premier League games this season.
Despite that, the 26-year-old put pen to paper on a new five-year deal just last month, although it has failed to quell speculation that he could be set to exit Old Trafford long before his contract expires.
Roberto Mancini has just taken over at Galatasaray and is looking to overhaul the squad he inherited from Fatih Terim. It's reported by Fotomac that the former Manchester City manager has identified Nani as a player he would like to bring in.
The need for a new creative option in midfield has only increased amid the rumours that Wesley Sneijder will leave in January, possibly to Chelsea, after being encouraged to do so by Dutch national team coach Louis Van Gaal in order to boost his international prospects ahead of the 2014 World Cup.
There is also a possibility that Nani and Sneijder could be involved in a direct swap deal with the Dutch playmaker having been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United in the past.
