Man United are readying a £20m move for Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio and according to the Daily Mirror the Old Trafford side are happy to include unwanted winger Nani as a makeweight in any deal.

Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to add more creativity to the centre of his midfield and has long been linked with interest in the 27 year old. The Scot may feel that he could convince Antonio Conte to consider offers for the Italian international given Juventus also have the likes of Andrea Pirlo, Arturo Vidal and youngster Paul Pogba to call upon.

Nani is likely to leave Man United this summer as he has just one year left on his current contract and hasn’t agreed a new deal. The Portuguese winger is no doubt unwilling to remain at the club given the lack of first team action he has seen this season, amounting to just seven Premier League starts thus far.

Marchisio is an attacking midfielder who gets forward a great deal and can be relied upon to pop up with regular goals, the long serving Juventus man has managed eight goals this term and got into double figures last term and has been a key member of Conte’s Serie A title winning side for the past two seasons.
