With Tottenham successfully fending off Manchester United for Gareth Bale’s signature, probably by paying more than Sir Alex wanted to, the two clubs might be set to do battle over an even more highly rated youngster – Sporting winger Nani after he again proclaimed his desire for a move to the Premiership,
“Sporting know my opinion about this subject. If an offer arrives which offers a good opportunity then I want to talk about it,” Nani told the Daily Mirror.
“Going to England is one of my options because the Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world and it will be a big challenge. But I have not spoken or made up my mind about any one club.
“I am prepared to go to England because I believe I would progress there.”
The rumour has been flying around for ages, and while Spurs continue to be linked with his signature the young lad has recently signed a new contract with Sporting – bumping his price up and professed his desire to play for United. This one looks like one the Big Boys will win.
