Could Nani be hinting a possible move away from Manchester United?

Earlier this evening, Nani, through his agent came out with a comment which could be construed as him thinking about leaving Manchester United. He has spent 5 years at the Manchester club and has a divide of fans who love him and some that don’t think he pulls he weight at the club. He has not been the most consistent player in the squad recently, but the guy does have talent. I for one would not be happy to see him leave Manchester United.

The rumours have started earlier this evening when the following comments were released through the Portuguese Television Channel RTP;

“Now I am really happy, but I don’t know about my future.

“Now I will study opportunities. Football is not only about England or Spain. It is possible to enjoy success in other countries.

“My agent is waiting on news about United. We have presented a counter-offer and now we are waiting on an offer from the club.”

Reading between the lines it sounds like Manchester United have offered the Portugal international a new contract, which was not good enough for Nani to stay at the Manchester club. It might be that he see’s himself as a ‘star’ player in the same league as Wayne Rooney and would like a bumper pay deal to stay at the club, or he might actually want to leave. We don’t know the facts right now, but it is certainly not looking good for Manchester United right now.

Earlier this week, Manchester United missed out on signing the talented Belgian, Eden Hazard and now this is happening.  I am sure it will all be sorted quite quickly after Euro 2012 has taken place in Poland and Ukraine.

Personally I want to see Nani at the club next season but I feel he would make more of an impact if he plays on the right-wing more often. I just think he looks more of a threat in that position, rather than being on the left all the time.

I just think that he hasn’t progressed as well as everyone thought and now Valencia and Young are both better wingers than him however he is on his day one of the best in the Premier League and I think Fergie would rather see him move abroad than stay in England

i think Nani shld stay just incase thea is an injury to Valencia.he is good cover up but for assists and team work Valencia and young are up the pecking order.with Kagawa wearing the no.7 jersey and cleverly back we’ll be a formidable team

Nani is a good average player. His whole game needs a makeover. Sell him for 30m and get Gotze or Eriksen , problem sorted.

I believe nani will not leave united now, he need more time to develop his game and i mean consistently, what abt gaitan? I believe sir Alex is done with man united, he should just please go and resign, we need a coach who can buy world class players not d one who do with a young ones and tend to compete with d likes of man city, chealsy and tottenham for trophies…

Or we could get Gaitan. Nani is a selfish player and shoots too often when a pass is the right move.

I agree totally that Nani needs to stay, i mean what message would that send if he leaves n we lead 2 left winger n let him play on the right, let him battle it out with valencia of which i think he wil come out on top
