Nani now has 4 goals in 5 Champions League appearances this season

by Sam Peoples

Nani scored once again for Sporting Lisbon in their 3-1 victory over Maribor in the Champions League last night.

The Portuguese winger had shots blocked before eventually finding enough space to find the back of the net.

Nani has become one of Sporting’s best and most influential players this season and is certainly taking advantage of his loan spell back with the Portuguese club.

Former Sporting director Costinha has been particularly impressed with him: “Nani is a great player who at this point should already be seen in a new light for Manchester United.”

Nani has already discussed on multiple occasions about whether he would consider a move back to United once his loan spell expired with Sporting and hasn’t ruled out a return. That being said, Louis van Gaal might rule out a return.

Regardless, Nani doing well on loan can only be considered a good thing because if he were to leave, his great form will help ensure United get the best possible price for him.
