Nani Wants United Stay

Manchester United winger Nani says he wants to stay at the club and fight for his place in the starting line-up.

The 26-year-old Portuguese international is in the last two years of his contract at Old Trafford, and at times in the past 12 months has seemed on the verge of leaving.

Former manager Alex Ferguson had a love-hate relationship with Nani, but appeared to lose patience with him towards the end of his tenure.

There have been a slew of reports suggesting that Nani’s agent has been in conversation with clubs in Russia and Turkey, but now the player says he wants to stay.

Additional reports also indicate that new United manager, David Moyes, is of a mind to keep Nani as well, as he seeks to retain the bulk of the squad that has had winning ingrained into its genetics by Fergie.

Nani gave his prospects for the season a boost by scoring a brace in United’s friendly win over Crewe last week, and was unfortunate to miss out on the Community Shield on Sunday due to a groin injury.

But he has clearly perceived a favourable change in his circumstances at United under Moyes, and is looking forward to playing for the champions this season.

"I hope to win the league again and, for my personal wishes, I want to be at my best and score a lot of goals,” Nani said.

“Like I said, I just need to be at my best and then everything will come together.”
