Manchester United midfielder Nani close to Fenerbahce move

Manchester United winger Nani is close to a move to Fenerbache according to a report in NTV Spor.

Nani was shipped out on loan to Sporting Lisbon last season where he impressed with seven goals during his 27 appearances for the club.

The Portuguese winger has been a Manchester United player since 2007 but fell out of favour under David Moyes and his successor Louis van Gaal before moving to Lisbon last season.

United have signed Memphis Depay and recently declared that Adnan Januzaj will not leave the club during the summer on loan meaning that Nani’s playing time, however limited, would be reduced to almost nothing.

When you throw Angel di Maria and Ashley Young into the mix, you have quite the attacking wide talent in the squad and can see why there is no room for Nani.

Despite the added pressure put on the dimensions of the squad with the Champions League next year, it appears as though United are willing to allow Nani leave at a time in his career when he could still fulfil the potential that he showed at during his time at United.
