Manchester United have suffered a setback in their quest to land Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski according to the Daily Mail with the German club saying they are ‘sick’ of the speculation.
Following a fantastic season in the Bundesliga – the 23-year-old scored 22 goals to help Dortmund to the title – Lewandowski was thought to be a target for Manchester United this summer.
These rumours then became even stronger when the striker scored the first goal of Euro 2012 in Poland’s 1-1 draw with Greece last Friday.
However, Dortmund are determined to hold onto their star man, with chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke insisting he is not for sale at any price.
Click Manchester is reporting today that Italian giants Juventus are keeping a close eye on Nani’s latest situation at Manchester United.
The winger is currently at the European Championships with Portugal of course and is set to discuss his Old Trafford future upon his return.
According to reports, Juventus coach Antonio Conte is in Poland and Ukraine this summer with a keen eye on how Nani is getting on.
The 25-year-old’s future is certainly up in the air at the moment with the Guardian reporting earlier this month that he will ‘study opportunities’ this summer.
There has also been plenty of speculation that Nani is stalling on his new contract with the Red Devils, so interested clubs – including Juventus – are keeping tabs.
The former Sporting Lisbon man is certainly coming to the peak of his career at the moment, so where he plays over the next few years is very important.
Having been in England since 2007, perhaps he thinks a spell in Italy or Spain would be beneficial to him. It would also keep things fresh.
As for Manchester United’s stance on it, they will be aware that Nani didn’t play as regularly last season and they could cash in on him this summer.
