The lack of quality in the wide areas has been the biggest flaw in Man United’s season so far, costing them long runs in the cup competitions. The most frustrating of the trio of wingers at the club has been Nani as the Portuguese is by far the most talented of the lot. Nani’s contract troubles and injuries haven’t helped his season a great deal and his latest performance at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea has only added to the opinion that the 26 year old might need a new environment.
Sir Alex Ferguson had stated earlier this year that Nani wasn’t for sale and that the winger would be offered a suitable contract when the need arises, but with his deal expiring next year there isn’t much time left. Zenit and Inter tried to land the former Sporting Lisbon attacker last summer but his wage demands scuppered a possible move.
