Nani to get Manchester United axe

Manchester United are ready to drop Nani after his poor performance against Everton on Monday, The Sun state.

The Portugal international failed to impress in the Red Devils’ opening day loss to the Goodison Park club and as such will be replaced in the starting line-up by Ashley Young for the game against Fulham this weekend.

The Portugal international’s future is in doubt after contract negotiations broke down, and a United insider is said to believe that Nani could be looking for a new club in the near future.

“The club did not think his form at the end of last season put him in a very strong bargaining position over a new deal. Monday was hardly his best either,” the United representative stated.

Sir Alex Ferguson has a plethora of wingers to choose from currently, with  Antonio Valencia and Young all available.
