New Galatasaray coach Roberto Mancini is making eyes at Manchester United winger Nani, as the possibility of Wesley Sneijder leaving Istanbul for a Jose Mourinho reunion at Chelsea gathers pace, according to Turkish outlet Fotomac.
Mancini is thought to have been handed a transfer kitty of €35m to splash in January and a new winger is uppermost in his mind.
The former Manchester City manager has already been linked with making a bid for another Manchester United player in the form of Antonio Valencia. But Mancini does not appear fussy, with Nani also in his sights.
The Portugal winger only penned a new five-year contract at Old Trafford last month, but may be available for the right price as Red Devils' boss David Moyes looks to continue reshaping his squad.
In Istanbul meanwhile there is a sense that Sneijder could be lost come the new year, with a genuine possibility that the Dutchman may head for Chelsea, in the process linking up with his former coach at Inter, Mourinho.
Sneijder moved to Galatasaray last winter, swapping Serie A for the Turkish Super Lig.
The 29-year-old was linked with joining Chelsea last summer, but did his best to play down the talk, despite confirming he remains firm friends with Mourinho.
