Manchester United may be forced to keep Nani – report

Manchester United may be forced to keep Nani at Old Trafford due to his massive wage demands, according to MailOnline.

The Portuguese was sent out on loan to Sporting Lisbon last summer after being told he was surplus to requirements by Louis van Gaal and that opinion hasn’t changed.

However, Man United have paid all of the player’s £110,000-a-week wages that were part of the five-year deal he signed in 2013 under David Moyes.

The three years remaining on his contract are worth £17m and it is unlikely that many teams will look to bring him in as a result.

Nani has enjoyed an impressive season with Sporting but his opportunities may be limited at United, particularly given the impending arrival of Memphis Depay.

Van Gaal has offloaded the likes of Darren Fletcher, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck since he took over but he may not find it so easy to get rid of Nani.

Of course, hindsight is 20/20 but United should have never allowed the 28-year-old to sign such a lucrative contract. Hopefully there is a club out there who can take him off United’s hands.
