Man Utd icon says 'you never know' as Ben Foster tries to persuade him to join Wrexham

Manchester United icon Nani could be the latest star to head to Hollywood-backed Wrexham.

The Portuguese ace, who won four Premier League titles on the books at Old Trafford, was back at the Theatre of Dreams on Sunday as Soccer Aid took centre stage to raise vital funds for UNICEF. Brought into the action after half an hour, Nani was up to his old tricks and flicks as the Rest of the World banked a fifth straight victory over England.

Now a free agent following the expiration of his contract at Melbourne Victory, the 36-year-old teased that he could be the latest signing for Ryan Reynolds' and Rob McElhenney's newly-promoted League Two side.

Partying on-stage with Wrexham goalkeeper Ben Foster, who penned a new one-year deal at the Welsh club last week, while lifting the Soccer Aid trophy, the ex-Red Devils winger hinted he too might be tempted by a 12-month deal at the Racecourse Ground.

"Nani hasn't got a club everybody," said Foster speaking directly to a vlogging camera as part of his behind-the-scenes video for YouTube channel The Cycling GK. "I think he should come to Wrexham. Do you want to come to Wrexham?"

Without a moment's hesitation the Portuguese wizard, who was a team-mate of Foster's at Old Trafford from 2007-2010, replied: "You never know." Though Foster was not convinced Nani's interest was genuine and he immediately turned the camera away from his Rest of the World colleague to joke "liar" - to which Nani gave a wry smile.

Even if the Champions League winner cannot be persuaded to make the move west, Foster has already confirmed his commitment to the Red Dragons for 2023/24. The goalkeeper came in as a late signing to replace injured first-choice shot-stopper Rob Lainton at the back end of the previous campaign, making eight appearances as the club fought off Notts County to claim the sole automatic promotion spot to the football league.

Due to their owners' deep pockets, Wrexham are the bookies' favourites to clinch back-to-back titles. The club have also penned a lucrative new sponsorship deal with United Airlines to help fund their transfer ambitions.
