United willing to sell Portuguese winger.
Manchester United are willing to sell Portuguese winger Nani for around £8.5million this summer, according to Sky Sports.
It has been widely believed for some time that the 26-year-old would be a candidate for the transfer list this summer, after enduring his worst season in a United shirt in 2012/13.
The likes of Juventus and Real Madrid have been linked with the former Sporting Lisbon man, but it is Galatasaray’s interest that has led to some clarity over the club’s asking price for the player.
Unal Aysal, Galatasaray’s chairman, claims that the Turks made United an offer of around £6million, which was rejected for not being high enough, and they now feel Nani may be out of their financial reach.
“We offered €7million (£6m) for him. But they didn’t accept. We can’t give more than this.
“We are not going to follow Nani anymore. We can’t give more than €7m for him.
“They want €10million (£8.5million). Because of this he is not on our transfer list anymore.”
Galatasaray have been linked with a number of big names this summer, following their signings of Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder in January. The likes of John Terry, Dimitar Berbatov, Florent Malouda and Lukas Podolski have all been linked with moves to Turkey, though it appears now that Nani will not be one of their new arrivals.
