Are Milan trying to grab Nani?

Nani

It is being reported that AC Milan are hoping to sign Manchester United winger Nani, who was frequently linked with Juventus.

AC Milan are tracking Manchester United's Portuguese international Nani, who appears to no longer be on Juventus' radar. 

Nani didn't have a happy season at Manchester United and it was frequently suggested that he may quit the club.

In January it appeared that Juventus were closing in on adding Nani to the ranks, but no deal materialised, possibly due to fitness concerns.

Juventus now seem to have moved on to other targets and look likely to confirm the signature of Juan Iturbe within the next few days.

Iturbe was a target for Milan, whose transfer activity has been put on hold until they can offload troubled marksman Mario Balotelli.

And now Tuttosport believes that Milan will respond to their transfer defeat by trying to bring in former Juventus target Nani.

The paper believes that Milan transfer guru Adrinao Galliani is a big fan of Nani and that he is the kind of player new coach Pippo Inzaghi would like to bring in.

Nani is still recovering from a disappointing World Cup with Portugal and may relish the opportunity to turn over a new leaf rather than return to United where his position in the pecking order is unclear.
