Portuguese winger set to sign new deal to stay at Old Trafford.
Juventus director general Beppe Marotta has insisted that Nani will not be joining the club, as he is set for a new deal with Manchester United.
The 26-year-old will see his current deal expire next summer, and it had been speculated that he would be leaving Old Trafford ahead of the deadline.
Having failed to add consistency to his unquestionable talent, the Portuguese winger was deemed to be dispensable, with reports in Italy claiming that Juve were close to agreeing a deal.
However, Marotta has dismissed those reports and claimed that Nani will remain in Manchester as he is set to sign a new contract.
“He’s renewed his contract with Manchester United and we never negotiated for him,” he told Mediaset Premium as reported by ESPN.
Nani joined United in a £17m move from Sporting Lisbon back in 2007, and has scored 40 goals in 212 games for the club.
However, injury problems last season ensured he was in and out of the squad, while a groin injury currently has him sidelined as he looks to work his way into boss David Moyes’ plans.
There has yet to be any confirmation from United over a new deal, but it would appear that Marotta has removed the Bianconeri from the picture in terms of potentially signing the player.
The likes of Anzhi, Monaco and Galatasaray have all been paired with an interest, and so it remains to be seen whether or not the Portuguese international will be extending his stay in the Premier League.
