It is being reported by LigTV that the winger will join the Turkish club after rejecting the advances of Monaco. Nani’s agent Jorge Mendes has been working closely with Monaco as the French club have spent £130m in just over a week bringing in reinforcements in preparation for an assault on ligue 1, but it appears Nani is one player that won’t be joining them, as he prefers a move to the Turkish champions.
The legitimacy of these reports are yet to be ascertained but a number of Turkish outlets have reported that Turkey is Nani’s preferred destination, with Fatih Terim’s side holding the advantage over Monaco by being able to offer Champions League football.
Nani almost left the club last summer with Zenit St Petersburg his destination but the move broke down. He now has just a year left on his current deal and as talks between player and club for a new deal reached an impasse, it lead to him being used sparingly this season.
There has been no mention of a fee as of yet.
