The Portuguese winger had only put pen-to-paper on  anew five-year deal with the Old Trafford club in September, but speculation has recently linked him with a move to Serie A champions.

He has been limited in his appearances for the Red Devils this term, featuring just 15 times in the Premier League, with the most recent coming in his side’s defeat to Newcastle United at the start of December.

However, despite all the evidence and gossip, Conte has insisted that he does not concern himself with such matters and leaves all transfer dealings to the club’s hierarchy.

“Nani? I’m the coach. For these things there are (director Beppe) Marotta and (sporting director Fabio) Paratici,” he said.

Conte also refused to be drawn into talking about the futures of midfield pair Paul Pogba and Andrea Pirlo, both of whom have been linked with moves away themselves.

“These questions must be put to Marotta. I only think of training.”

Conte is looking to guide the club to their third consecutive Scudetto, but has challenged his players to make a success of cup competitions too.

“I’m proud of this group. In two years we have made important steps, but I’m sure that Juve won’t stop here. The aim is to win also on an international level.

“Now we have three aims for this season: scudetto, Coppa Italia and Europa League.”
