Manchester United's Nani reportedly landing in Turkey this evening with Fenerbahce deal imminent

Old Trafford 2

It seems one of Manchester United's players could soon be off permanently.

According to a report from Turkish website NTVSpor, Fenerbahce will announce the signing of Manchester United winger Nani imminently with the player landing in the country at 6:00pm this evening.

The Portuguese international will reportedly touch down later today with a deal allegedly set to be confirmed, with the Turkish side set to sign something of a bargain given the potential fee involved.

The 28-year-old spent last season on loan at Sporting Lisbon where he enjoyed something of a renaissance, scoring 12 goals and providing eight assists. But it is seemingly not his former club that will benefit from his talent long-term, with Fenerbahce reportedly closing in on a formal announcement.

Nani has been a frustrating figure during his time at United, sometimes looking like a world-beater but more often failing to effectively utilise his undeniable talent.

There was a time earlier in his career when it looked like the penny had finally dropped and he started performing brilliantly on the wing for United, but that period was all too brief.

It now looks like he could be leaving United after 230 appearances, in which time he scored 40 goals and provided 73 assists.
