Man United the favourites to re-sign star winger this summer – report

Manchester United are the bookmakers' favourites to re-sign Nani this summer

Manchester United are the bookmakers’ favourites to re-sign Nani from Fenerbahce this summer, according to reports.

Jose Mourinho has already made his first signing of the summer transfer window by wrapping up a deal to bring Eric Bailly to the club from Villarreal.

United are believed to be keen to bolster their attacking options ahead of Mourinho’s first season in charge.

Nani made 147 appearances in his first spell with United and after a productive season in Turkey, in which he guided his side to a second-placed league finish and scored eight goals, the former Red Devils favourite could be in line for a reunion with his compatriot Mourinho.

And BetStars are making Manchester United the 4/5 odds-on favourites to re-sign the Portuguese winger in the summer transfer window.

Trading director at BetStars Ian Marmion said: “All the talk at United since the Special One’s appointment has been on the likes of Zlatan joining the ranks at Old Trafford, but Nani has been backed heavily into 4/5 over the past 48 hours and looks set for a surprise return to the club.

“He struggled for form and fitness towards the end of his first spell with United but joining up with his fellow Portuguese countryman could turn out to be a very shrewd move.”
