Italian source Il Sussidiario today suggests that Man United are ready to use winger Nani as bait to help land Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio.
25 year old Portuguese international Nani is apparently weighing up his options after being offered an improved contract worth around £130k according to this source but the former Sporting Lisbon man is apparently considering leaving Old Trafford and therefore Sir Alex Ferguson may feel this is an opportune time to use the player as bait.
Juventus midfielder is apparently on the Man United radar and perhaps if Nani was offered in exchange for the 26 year old Italian international, it’s an offer the Turin club could be keen on.
Marchisio was in fine form last term, providing a goal threat and creative presence in the centre of Antonio Conte’s midfield as Juventus clinched the Serie A title.
The local born midfielder is part of Cesare Prandelli’s Italian Euro 2012 squad and a player who has represented Juventus since the age of seven but could perhaps be ready for a new challenge in the English top tier.
Sir Alex Ferguson could well do with added creativity in a midfield that currently has a fairly brittle feel with the likes of Darren Fletcher, Anderson, Michael Carrick and Paul Scholes not offering all that much in the way of invention going forward.
