Report: Former Manchester United winger Nani interested in MLS

Nani - Sporting CP - Celebrate


A former Manchester United winger and Portuguese international, who starred at Sporting CP during his teenage years, is interested in joining Major League Soccer. That may cover a couple notable players, but in this case it refers to Nani.

Nani, who returned to Sporting CP in July, is reportedly being shopped around the league, according to Jonathan Tannenwald of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Nani, 32, has seven goals in 16 league appearances for Sporting this season. He has featured 129 times for the club, but made his name at Manchester United, where he had 40 goals and 73 assists in 230 matches. Nani also featured for Fenerbahce, Lazio and Valencia in recent years. 

The report does not clarify which, if any, MLS sides are interested in pursuing the skillful winger.
