Manchester United benchwarmer Nani could be offered a four-year deal to remain at Old Trafford, after a summer linking him with a move away from the club. The Sun reports Nani will stay on his £90,000-a-week wage for the entirety of the deal and he could see an improvement in his bonuses. The Portugal international had been linked with a move to Juventus and Monaco in recent weeks, but Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta laid to rest suggestions that Nani could be leaving after revealing he was in negotiations with United over an extension. Although he has fallen out of favour in recent seasons, Nani's long-term future will soon be set in stone.

Rafa Benitez is eager to sign former Liverpool player Mohamed Sissoko, despite the midfielder apparently nearing a move to Championship side Reading. The Daily Star says Benitez is ready to make a move for the player he managed during his time at Anfield. Everton have also shown an interest in Sissoko recently but are unlikely to pursue their interest, given the deadline day signings they made.

Things are starting to head in the right direction for Arsene Wenger. After making one of the summer's best captures by securing Mesut Ozil right at the death, the Frenchman is ready to solidify his squad by offering contract extensions to a number of his experienced players. Per Mertesacker, Bacary Sagna and Tomas Rosicky are all expected to receive new offers in a bid to fend off rival clubs in the January window, the Daily Mail reports.

Over at Goodison Park and Leighton Baines will be handsomely rewarded for his loyalty in rejected Manchester United's overtures, with Everton set to offer him a 50 per cent pay rise and a three-year extension, according to the Mirror. nani trans
