Manchester United winger Nani could leave the club to join Valencia this week if Singapore businessman Peter Lim is given the go-ahead to buy the Spanish club.

Lim, who tried to buy Liverpool in 2010, will find out on Wednesday if his £250million offer for Valencia has been accepted.

If the debt-stricken club’s main creditors Bankia wave through the takeover Lim has promised to spend £40million euros this transfer window and Nani will be one of his first purchases.

Nani’s agent Jorge Mendes is working closely with Lim and the two spoke at the Fifa Ballon d’Or gala on Monday. They also watched Valencia crash out of the Spanish Cup together on Tuesday.

Valencia have also been linked with Monaco’s Radamel Falcao.

The Colombian is another Mendes client and it is being seen as another sweetener for those who control Valencia to give Lim the green light although unlikely to come to pass in view of the player’s huge transfer fee and wages.
