[football] direct news understands that Manchester United have rejected a bid from Monaco for Portuguese winger Nani. It had been reported that Portuguese winger Nani had agreed a deal with Juventus last month, whilst Inter Milan were also said to be keen, but as time has passed and the season drew to an end, his future became less unknown. New United boss Louis van Gaal is expected to put for sale a number of the current United team, but not before he has seen each player and discussed his ideas and the future of the club, meaning Nani could stay. But, [football] direct news understands that Ligue 1 side Monaco have had a bid rejected by Man United this week. The French side are ready to spend big this summer in a bid to push Paris Saint Germain for the title and it is understood that a second bid will be submitted in the coming days. Juventus and Inter Milan have since backed off with their interest but both could be buoyed by the fact Monaco have seemingly lost out, for now.
