Juventus Close To Land United Star?

Juventus could be a possible destination for Manchester United winger Nani if he chooses to leave the club this summer after talks over a contract extension broke down.

The Portuguese winger is reportedly being offered a £130k a week contract which is significantly higher than what he is paid at the present moment. The 25 year old is apparently demanding more and it is still unclear if United would be willing to meet his requirements. Earlier, Nani spoke of the deadlock situation between the club and his agent over the contract before leaving for the Euros. He refused to rule out the possibility of a move and even hinted at joining Serie A champions when he said that there are plenty of clubs beyond Premier League and La Liga.

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has recently been given another year of contract and the club is keen to add to their squad to mount a serious challenge in the Champions League next season. They are likely to re-sign Giovinco and are also reportedly in the mix to sign Robin Van Persie. However, with two years still remaining on his current contract at Old Trafford it would take a sum of over £20m to prize the talented winger away from United.
