Nani: Manchester United winger has been linked with Juventus

The Portuguese winger only signed a new five-year contract with the Red Devils in September but speculation emerged at the weekend linking him to Juventus.

The 27-year-old has featured 15 times for the Premier League champions this term, with his last appearance coming in the 1-0 home loss to Newcastle on 7th December.

But Conte refused to be drawn on the speculation, preferring to leave transfer dealings to the club's hierarchy.

"Nani? I'm the coach. For these things there are (director Beppe) Marotta and (sporting director Fabio) Paratici," he said.

Refused

He also refused to be drawn regarding the futures of current Juve players Paul Pogba and Andrea Pirlo, amid rumours they could be leaving next season.

In comments reported by Gazzetta dello Sport, Conte is quoted as saying: "These questions must be put to Marotta. I only think of training."

Conte is seeking to guide his side to a third consecutive title but has also challenged his players to be successful in cup competitions as well.

He added: "I'm proud of this group. In two years we have made important steps, but I'm sure that Juve won't stop here. The aim is to win also on an international level.

"Now we have three aims for this season: scudetto, Coppa Italia and Europa League."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
