The latest rumour surrounding United’s Summer transfer activity is that Sir Alex Ferguson is preparing to swap Nani for Wesley Sneijeder.
According to the Metro:
R20;Italian sources claim the Serie A giants have identified the Portuguese winger as the man they want to reshape their attack, and are willing to offer their Dutch playmaker in exchange.
“Sir Alex Ferguson has been a long-term admirer of Sneijder, and although he would be reluctant to part with one of his outstanding players of the season, the temptation to finally land the midfield schemer may be too much to resist – especially with Paul Scholes in the twilight of his career.”
Nani currently has nine goals and 14 assists in the Premier League alone and is a strong contender for United’s player of the season. After a great start to his Old Trafford career Nani had a quiet 18 months before proving his worth with a series of stunning displays. Why Sir Alex Ferguson would want to sacrifice one of his most dangerous players is a mystery and surely yet another example of shoddy journalism with no real ‘sources’ other than theories and conjecture.
Sneijder’s a great player don’t get me wrong, but I find the idea that United would be willing to let Nani go under any circumstances, quite simply laughable.
