Manchester United to Arsenal?
Reports coming out of England recently have suggested that Manchester United outcast Nani could be on his way to Arsenal. It is common knowledge that Nani is on the way out of Manchester United, after yet another row with head coach Sir Alex Ferguson. The winger has been in bad form this season, but one must not forget his form last season. When in form, few will argue that Nani is one of the foremost wingers in the world. But being in form is a problem for Nani. In the last two seasons combined, the winger managed 28 assists in the Premier League alone. This season has not been so fortunate. Sir Alex Ferguson seems to be fed up with the winger once-and-for-all. News of spats between the two are not new, but recently, Ferguson has signaled that Nani’s time at Old Trafford may be up. Hearing this, a host of clubs were, and are, rumored to be tracking the winger. Among these are Juventus, Inter, Porto, Benfica, and now Arsenal.

Arsenal may be the most likely deal to go through as of right now. Soon after the Arsenal rumor hit the press, Sir Alex Ferguson hinted that he may be interested in acquiring the services of Theo Walcott, of Arsenal. Could a swap be in the pipeline? Surely, if these rumors are true, a swap would be the smartest move for both clubs. Nani could work wonders at The Emirates, while Walcott could fill the role as backup to Ashley Young and Valencia at United. The players are very similar. The main difference between the two is that Walcott is quicker, while Nani has a penchant for crossing and producing wonderful goals.
