Manchester United winger Nani is set to leave to the club this summer, with his agent revealing that Fiorentina and other Serie A sides are vying for his signature.
Despite signing a new five-year deal last September, the Portugal international has only made five Premier League starts under David Moyes, and is understood to be frustrated with the lack of opportunities at Old Trafford. Ashley Young is often preferred at his expense.
However, agent Andrea Pastorello believes the financial situations of several Italian clubs may prove to be an obstacle.
"Nani is a very important player and at this time the only thing I can say is that he is likely to leave Manchester," he told Violanews.com.
"The problem for Fiorentina and other Italian clubs is the player’s salary. But we will evaluate all bids.
"Our relationship with United is great. Fiorentina have to speak with Manchester United about Anderson [who is on loan from the Reds to the Florence club], and maybe there will be an opportunity to talk about Nani too."
Since his transfer to Old Trafford back in 2007, Nani has failed to reach the lofty heights expected of him. This term the 27-year-old has made 11 appearances in all competitions, scoring once in the 5-0 demolition of Bayer Leverkusen.
