Check in to Manchester United vs Manchester City

Man United are ready to offer winger Nani in an exchange deal as David Moyes pursues Benfica defender Ezequiel Garay according to Football Direct News.

Garay’s efforts this term have led his Lisbon based side to the top of the Primeira Liga table, having conceded just 15 goals in 23 fixtures, and into the last eight of the Europa League.

Garay has done well to re-ignite his career following a stuttering spell at Real Madrid and may feel that his career progression would be better served by a move to the Premier League side though Man United’s efforts will be significantly helped if they can secure a Champions League berth for next term.

As well as seeing Vidic leave it’s likely that Rio Ferdinand will follow the Serbian to a Man United exit with the 35 year old veteran seeing his current contract expire at the end of the current campaign.

Juventus and Inter Milan are said to be keen on Nani, who is now a bit-part player at Old Trafford, and the Portuguese international may feel a move back to the Primeira Liga would help re-ignite his career.
