Manchester United winger Nani negotiating blockbuster summer switch

Manchester United winger Nani is reported to be in negotiations with PSG over a summer move.

After a torrid season at Old Trafford, it appears Nani is to walk through the Old Trafford exit door this summer.

The Portuguese winger has made just 10 Premier League appearances all season, scoring one goal - three in all competitions.

Zenit St Petersburg were said to be interested in him in late August, and he has since been linked to be Inter Milan and Porto, but it appears his future could now lie in France.

A report in French newspaper Le Parisien claims the 26-year-old has emerged as a potential target for big-spending PSG.

It states: "According to a source close to Jorge Mendes, the super agent who manages the career of Nani, PSG is the preferred destination. Contacts have even been established."

If true then this is superb news for United, who will be not only to cash in on Nani, but PSG could just pay over the odds for him.

Last summer they offered £8 million more than United did for Lucas Moura to secure his signature from Sao Paolo.

For United, wrapping up the sale of Nani would be good news because it will no longer be a question mark hanging over them, and they can get on with the business of replacing him.

It also bring in transfer funds which can be put towards a mega-move for a superstar like Falcao, which has been suggested this week, with the player also represented by Mendes.

PSG are determined to build on their impressive Champions League campaign this season by adding strength in depth to their squad, and Nani's ability to play on the left and right makes him an interesting target for them.

Nani's contract expires in 2014, so United will want to cash in on him this summer rather than see him walk away on a free next season, with club and player unable to agree a new deal.

Would this be good news for United? How much could they get for Nani from PSG?
