Inter favourites for Nani?

Inter are increasingly linked with a swoop for Manchester United winger – and Juventus target – Nani.

The Daily Mail, the Independent and Sky Sports UK all claim the Nerazzurri are hot favourites to snap up the Portugal international.

Odds on Inter completing the transfer have been slashed to 4/11 with just over 24 hours left in the January window.

The 27-year-old is currently out of action with a hamstring injury, but struggled to regularly break into the starting XI at Old Trafford.

Nani played 226 games for Manchester United with 41 goals since arriving from Sporting Lisbon in 2007.

Inter are putting most of their focus on signing Hernanes from Lazio for €20m, so any deal for Nani would have to be on loan.

Juventus had been linked for over a year, but appear to have pushed Nani aside in favour of their bid for Southampton striker Dani Osvaldo.

It’s widely reported in Italy that a deal has been struck with Saints to take Osvaldo on loan for €400,000 plus a series of performance-related bonuses and an option to buy for €20m.
