Only a few days ago the media was awash with stories that Nani had been offered to Monaco after the club’s Sporting Director Vadim Vasilyev claimed:
“Nani has been offered to us”
“He is a very good player, but at the moment there have been no talks yet. We have already changed our group quite a bit and we also want to offer opportunities to our young players.”
United fans were split over whether they wanted Nani to stay with many feeling after six seasons and certain question marks remaining over his consistency- not to mention time running out on his contract, it could be time to move on.
In the recent friendly against AIK Nani was the star of the show- for half an hour- but even that cameo seems to have convinced many Reds it’s still worth giving the winger another chance.
30 minutes in a friendly doesn’t mean a lot but Nani’s performance seemed to at least get many Reds thinking, could Moyes be feeling the same?
Nani was brought off with an injury that isn’t too serious as Moyes noted: “Nani just felt his groin tighten up and he didn’t want to take any risks. Neither did we. We thought it was safer to take him off at that time.”
Nani and Wilfried Zaha both looked lively and that could be a wing pairing that works well, you just wonder whether 30 mins in a friendly has gone any way to convincing Moyes to stick with the Portuguese winger.
Does Nani deserve a chance? Answers on a brick through the usual window- or comment below:
