Transfer speculation: Manchester United 'willing to sell Nani for £8.5m' amid interest from Monaco and Juventus

The midfielder's future has been uncertain for some time

Manchester United winger Nani looks set to leave this summer, with the Portuguese international reportedly drawing interest from both Monaco and Juventus.

Nani has just 12 months to run on his current contract with United and new boss David Moyes is understood to be willing to let the 26-year-old leave for around £8.5m.

Negotiations for a new contract have stalled after the player turned down a move to Zenit St Petersburg last summer.

Galatasaray were leading the race to sign the Portugal international but the Turkish club's chairman told Sky Sports that they could not meet the valuation.

Unal Aysal said: "We offered €7million (£6m) for him. But they didn't accept. We can't give more than this.

"We are not going to follow Nani anymore. We can't give more than €7m for him.

"They want €10million (£8.5million). Because of this he is not on our transfer list anymore."

Mega-rich French side Monaco and Italian champions Juventus have both been linked with moves for the player.

Manchester United have been strongly linked with Nani's international teammate, centre-back Ezequiel Garay.
