Manchester United: Some fans claim 33-year-old Nani should return to Old Trafford

Manchester United will be hoping the purchase of Daniel James and decision to play Marcus Rashford down the left can return the type of football that saw Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani, on his day, flourish.

Is it time for Manchester United to let Nemanja Matic go?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Transfermarkt note that Nani scored 40 goals and made 73 assists during his 230 games for the club, yet most will agree with Rio Ferdinand’s Facebook post when he said the forward “would have wanted more games and to have influenced more consistently”. He was sold by Louis van Gaal in 2015, but he still left United fans with some great memories of incredible goals and skills.

It was his 33rd birthday on Sunday, and United news aggregator Utd Xtra posted a compilation of some of those strikes and tricks. The caption to the video was “Happy birthday @luisnani. On his day, he was one of the best wingers in the world. Scored some bangers too” and fans were quick to reply in agreement, with some fans even saying he’d do a job for the current United side despite now playing for Orlando City in the MLS.

You can see some of their reactions to the tweet below:

Manchester United fans, who do you think your club need to sign in January to fight for the top four?
