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."
