Manchester United are considering a move which will see them re-sign their former winger Nani from Turkish club Fenerbahce. He moved to Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon in 2007 and left the English giants last summer.
According to Turkish publication DHA, new Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho has informed the club's hierarchy of his desire to bring the Portuguese international back to England in the summer transfer window.
Nani left United and joined Sporting Lisbon on loan in 2014 as he was included in a deal that saw the 20-time English champions sign Argentine defender Marcos Rojo. After spending one season on loan with his former club, former manager Louis van Gaal sanctioned his sale as he joined Fenerbahce on a permanent transfer.
The Dutchman was allowed to leave the club in May and was replaced by Mourinho. The ex-Real Madrid and Chelsea manager has set his sights on re-signing his compatriot. The 29-year-old has offers from China, but it is believed that United have now joined the race for the winger's signature.
Fenerbahce have inserted a €8m (£6.25m, $9m) release clause in his contract for European clubs. Interested clubs could match his asking price and United are set to trigger his buyout clause in order to bring him back to Old Trafford.
The same report also claims that Nani has agreed personal terms with his former employers. United are yet to hold talks with the Turkish outfit for a player, who scored 12 goals and registered 13 assists for Fenerbahce.
Nani had a good start to his United career, but his last few years with the Premier League outfit saw him struggle for regular playing time. During Sir Alex Ferguson's final season, the Portuguese winger made only seven starts in the Premier League.
