According to reports from The Independent (via Sports Vibe), Inter Milan have been linked with Manchester United winger Nani.

The Portuguese international, who spent the whole of last season on loan with Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon, may be seeking a permanent move away from Old Trafford this summer. The Nerazzurri have reportedly been tracking Nani for some time now, and could potentially make a move for him if the price is right.

The fact that Nani has been a castaway for Louis van Gaal's Man U side is not surprising, as the Dutch manager has a multitude of attacking talent to choose from (however toothless they may seem at times). But winger of this caliber could be a decent fit for this Inter side, at least on paper. Whether his style of play translates into either Mancini's plans or the pace of Serie A is another consideration altogether.

Nani is currently on contract to stay with The Red Devils through 2019, but there is already a price tag swirling around the player if he does request a move. If Inter were to make a bid for the offensive wide man, reports claim that the number would be somewhere in the neighborhood of £7.3 million.
