New Manchester United head coach David Moyes will shortly offer unsettled wide man Luis Nani a new contract to remain at Old Trafford beyond next summer, according to reports in the Sun.

The Portugal international’s future with the Premier League champions had been in doubt since the end of the previous campaign, with a whole host of big-name clubs from across the continent having been linked with the 26-year-old of late.

Serie A champions Juventus and Turkish giants Galatasaray both expressed an interest in signing Nani during the close-season, however, Moyes’s appointment to succeed previous United manager Sir Alex Ferguson this season has resulted in a change of heart by the former Sporting Lisbon man.

Under Moyes’s predecessor, the winger had been largely frozen out in the north-west, but the former Everton boss has since sat down with Nani and reassured him about his long-term future at the club, telling the player that he will get more game time going forward at United.

And as a result, the two parties are expected to shortly sit down to open talks over extending Nani’s current deal with the Red Devils that expires on June 30 2014, with United set to offer the midfield player a four-year deal worth £90,000 per week to stay at the club.
