In recent turn of events, German heavy weight club Bayern Munich have admitted that its board has tried signing Manchester United winger and Portuguese international Nani, whom United have priced exorbitantly.

Bayern said that the club had tried to sign the player from United but were unable to conclude a successful transaction as the English club had priced him high enough to be out of Bayern's reach. Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge also said that the club had an interest in Nani, but unfortunately the price went up and the player became too expensive.

However, the Germans will look to make another attempt to lure the Portuguese away to the Allianz Arena with a higher bidding price this time. Bayern, currently, are going through a bad footballing phase and have lost two of their last four Bundesliga games after a perfect run of seven wins in eight games with no goals conceded.

Nani has been in a fine run of form and has become one of the most consistent weapons in Sir Alex Ferguson's arsenal, and so it is expected that any offer for the player will be turned down by the management if they don't receive a hefty sum.

Bayern, currently, are sitting on top of the Bundesliga, with 28 points from 13 games, but will know that Borussia Dortmund is in the second place breathing on their necks with 26 points from 13 games, according to a Caughtoffside report.

Luis Carlos Almeida da Cunha, popularly known as Nani, who arrived at Old Trafford from Sporting CP in 2007, has made 172 appearances for United and has even managed to find the back of the net 32 times.
