Manchester United forward Nani may have strained his relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson by appearing to label the Scotsman as "complicated", but Italian giants Juventus and Milan are allegedly ready to offer the Portugal international a winter window escape route.
Nani seems to feel he is being underused at Old Trafford, leading to the winger's controversial remarks earlier in the week.
He clarified his stance, saying: "I often speak with the coach about my performance. I accept
Ferguson's decision but I want to have more minutes on the field.
"After Cristiano Ronaldo left, I wanted a bigger role, but the coach picks the team. Against Chelsea I wanted a chance but it didn't come but you need to accept bad moments, I have no problem with the coach."
According to the The Sun, Juventus and Milan have seen enough from Nani's game to be convinced he will be a star in Serie A.
Burgeoning French forward Gabriel Obertan's return from injury may further limit Nani's chances of first-team football with the reigning Premier League champions.
During the summer, Nani was also linked with a move to Spain, with Atletico Madrid and Villarreal being mooted destinations.
