Lokomotiv Moscow midfielder Manuel Fernandes says Manchester United winger Nani has already made a decision over his next move.

Nani, 28, spent last season on loan at former club Sporting Lisbon, where he was able to recover his form after injury and inconsistency saw him fall out of favour at Old Trafford.

The Portugal international has spoken openly of his desire to return to Old Trafford and battle for a first team role in Louis van Gaal's side. However, according to Turkish publication Hurriyet, Fenerbahce have already held negotiations with the player, who will undergo a medical next week.

It is claimed Nani has already agreed personal terms with the Turkish giants, a four-year deal worth £55,000 (€77,000) per week, and Fernandes, a childhood friend of the United winger, claims they have spoken about the move.

"[Nani] has asked me questions about Istanbul," Fernandes told LigTV, translated by turkish-football.com.

"I explained to him the pros and cons about moving to Istanbul. He has already made up his mind, however, it is up to him to unveil his next step."

After two injury-hit seasons at United, Nani enjoyed a fine season back in his homeland last term, where he scored 12 goals in 35 appearances and helped Sporting win the Taca de Portugal.

According to Portuguese media outlet Sapo, Sporting's rivals Benfica have considered making an offer, only for the player himself to swiftly rule out a move.

"No, I don't think about the possibility of signing for Benfica and I don't want to talk about it as I said before," Nani said on Tuesday 16 June ahead of Portugal's international friendly with Italy.

"My focus is with Portugal right now and I am just thinking about our next game and my holiday afterwards."
