“My future? Nothing is certain. I am calm. I have everything in my hands. I am not saying that I will not continue at Manchester United. I will think about what is best for me.” Nani
Nani has linked up with Radamel Falcao on holiday in Miami in a summer of uncertainty as to whether he will be a Manchester United player next season or not.
He posted the photo on his Twitter and Facebook accounts and recently the 26-year-old admitted that nothing is certain regarding his future. Given that he shares the same agent (Mendes) as Falcao does, a move to Monaco could certainly materialise.
Porto pair James Rodriguez and Joao Moutinho already made the move so there is already some Portuguese influence at the club and Monaco wouldn’t be a bad place to live by any stretch of the imagination.

Galatasaray ruled themselves out of signing Nani and revealed that United asked for just a €10 million transfer fee. Given that United paid out €25 million for him six years ago and he is a far better player now than he was then, that fee seems way below his market value.
United have already brought in Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace to provide some much needed options on the wings. Valencia, Young and Nani all had dismal seasons with the latter also having the painful controversy of the Champions League exit to Real Madrid to remember.
No movement has been confirmed by Nani at all but he has never blossomed into the player we had hoped he would become following Ronaldo’s departure.
But for €10 million, if that is indeed the price United are willing to accept, I can’t see how we could replace a player of Nani’s talent. On his day, he is unstoppable. It is just that United fans don’t get to see that enough.
