Yeah. But am not too hopeful. Looking at him these last two seasons he seems like he has lost his footballing brain. Doesn't know what to do with the ball in the final third and mostly makes the wrong decision in the end

Injuries and confidence are probably bigger factors. He's likely to benefit from playing regular football at a lower level.

Nani has got to be one of the most frustrating players I can think of. To paraphrase Alan Partridge, he's more frustrating than being stood behind someone in the queue, at a train station ticket office, who is getting a rail pass, involving passport photo, scissors, glue etc.

Will be interesting to see how he does in Portugal. If he can keep fit he'll do really well I think.

Criminal not to mark him!

Seems to be getting his confidence back at Sporting. Loan move might work out best for us in the end, he might come back to us re-energised or we'll get a higher transfer fee.

Think I saw that 70% or something Portuguese fans have voted him the league's best player. Seen someone say that if a William Carvalho or someone was playing this well, a lot of United fans would want to sign them and that we're wrong to dismiss Nani.

Does he still have a future at United.
