Nani has been constantly linked with a move away from Manchester United this summer and a growing interest from the newly blessed french side Monaco and the Italian giants Juventus has made the winger’s position at the Old Trafford a precarious one.

A lot has changed at the Theatre of Dreams since the last month, and with Sir Alex retiring, the only vocal admirer of the Portuguese international’s talents seems to have departed the club, leaving everyone in two minds about Nani’s future.

David Moyes is yet to address his role at the club and whether the winger is a part of his schemes at United is yet to be seen.

This time last year, Daniel Agger, Liverpool’s Danish center back, was being linked with a host of top European clubs including the likes Barcelona, but now it seems that the times are a changing. Monaco, the Principality based club, who have gone into a crazy streak of signing top players in Europe for hefty amounts of money, are now chasing the Dane and will reportedly offer the player a four year deal to relocate, according to the French newspaper L’Equipe.

Agger, who was at the heart of Liverpool’s defence last season turning out 35 times for the club, is known to show his affection towards the fans quite publicly. The Dane recently inscribed the Liverpool slogan YNWA (You'll Never Walk Alone) on his knuckles to show his commitment to the club.

Luís Carlos Almeida da Cunha, affectionately called Nani, has become a sort of an enigma in Manchester. He has the ability to decide the fate of the match single-handedly on his day but can someday turn in the worst performances in England. His inconsistencies have become his downfall despite some stellar showings. The man who was supposed to be Ronaldo’s replacement at Old Trafford,never really lived up to the expectations despite being voted Manchester United’s Players’ player of the year in 2010-11 season. Now, Monaco are all set to offer the Red Devils 20 million pounds to join the recently promoted French club.

David Moyes would be willing to sell the consistently inconsistent player and can use the cash obtained in the transfer to boost his summer budget to 80 million pounds. The winger will join Colombia's Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez, and his own compatriot Joao Moutinho at big spending Monaco. The deal looks beneficial to all parties as the Portuguese looks surplus at Old Trafford and will hope to rejuvenate his career at a new club with more starting opportunities, something which Monaco can provide.
