Manchester United winger Nani has set a two-week deadline within which he will sort out his future, reported the Daily Mail. The 25 year-old sees himself as an integral part of the United setup and feels that the club should offer him a new deal and increase his wages significantly. However, talks of a new contract have broken down thrice and the Portuguese feels that the club are intending to sell him soon. The player will return to training after an extended vacation after representing Portugal in the Euros and his future may become clear at that time.
A player switch between Manchester United and Benfica may be on the cards with the Portuguese club looking at Red Devil’s midfielder Anderson as a replacement for their much wanted star Axel Witsel. Whilst Anderson has slumped of late, seeing his appearances decline due to injuries and poor form, Witsel has caught the eye of European giants Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid for his impressive performances. TalkSPORT has revealed Benfica’s desire to sign the Brazilian from Old Trafford and the Daily Mail believes that this interest could help United in snapping up Witsel.
Manchester United have rekindled their interest in Brazilian midfielder Lucas Moura as they look likely to miss out on Luka Modric to either Real Madrid or Chelsea and Joao Moutinho to Tottenham, reports the Daily Mail. However, they would have to splash big bucks for the 19 year old with his club Sao Paulo already having rejected a massive £32.4 million bid by Champions League winners Chelsea. The deal looks increasingly unlikely as Sao Paulo have already warned suitors to stay away from their star atleast until the 2014 World Cup and Man Utd would have tabled a big offer for Modric if they had the money available.
Hull City boss Steve Bruce is looking at third choice Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Amos to become his no 1 at the Championship side for the season. The Daily Mail reports that Bruce’s failure to land Brad Guzan (on his way back to Aston Villa) has made him look at his former club for a shot stopper. We believe that the 22 year old would be allowed to move on loan to help him develop, and would cost the Tigers around £250,000.
