Chief Exec David Gill has been spotted in Portugal on transfer deal.

Watch this space - looks like we are buying Nani - left winger!!

From Sky News:

Manchester United and Tottenham target Nani is keen on a move to the Premiership. The Sporting Lisbon winger, dubbed the next Cristiano Ronaldo and aiming to follow in his countryman's footsteps, claims he has made his future intentions clear to his club. Reports suggest Martin Jol and Sir Alex Ferguson are vying for Nani's signature and the 20-year-old would like to be given permission to speak with a suitor should the right offer come along.

"Sporting know my opinion about this subject. If an offer arrives which offers a good opportunity then I want to talk about it," Nani told the Daily Mirror. "Going to England is one of my options because the Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world and it will be a big challenge. But I have not spoken or made up my mind about any one club. "I am prepared to go to England because I believe I would progress there."

Here is the full story from sportinglife.com

Manchester United are looking to make Sporting Lisbon winger Nani their second summer signing.

Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed he wanted to bring in at least three new faces in an effort to ensure the Premiership title remains at Old Trafford next season.

A £17million deal for England midfielder Owen Hargreaves is only believed to require the finishing touches before going through and although United did miss out on Southampton starlet Gareth Bale, it appears the Red Devils are eager to ensure Nani does not slip through the net.

The 20-year-old has refused to sign an extension to his present contract, which expires in the summer.

It is rumoured United chief executive David Gill and assistant manager Carlos Queiroz have flown to Lisbon for talks over a possible move, with reports in the Portuguese press suggesting the deal could even involve Nani spending next season on loan with his current club.

Certainly, if a move did take place, Ferguson would hope Nani could have a similar impact to the last player United signed from Sporting, footballer of the year Cristiano Ronaldo.

Meanwhile, United are believed to be close to abandoning the Malaysian leg of their Far East tour.

The Old Trafford outfit had hoped a personal visit from Gill to Malaysia could help resolve the row which has erupted over their visit, which was part of the country's 50th anniversary celebrations but also clashes with the prestigious Asia Cup.

However, with the Asian Football Confederation holding the right of veto over the fixture, scheduled for July 27, and showing no sign of bending, the point is approaching when United finally admit defeat and find an alternative fixture to slot into a pre-season programme which already includes an Old Trafford encounter with Inter Milan on August 1.

I think after all this business about Nani is clouding the media attention for Anderson- after seeing some Portuguese football highlights and his performances in the Champion's League, it might be Anderson that sets the premiership alight next season.

Why you want to get rid of richarson he is a good player
Richardson is a joke. Easily Uniteds worst player. Hope we get rid of him. Looks like Robson wants to take him to Sheffield. Please take him Robbo. We want class in our squad not rubbish.
