It's actually kinda funny how bad he can be considering how good he has been in the past. Even those clips show it, that touch before the assist for Portugal is ridiculously good.

 

Had it been someone else we would probably be creaming over it even more.

God, I hope so. There's a flight from Manchester set to land at Lisbon Airport in about 5 minutes. If he's on it, there's going to be an orgasm fest in Alvalade today.

A new challenge is exactly what he needs.

Such a shame though. Another waste of ridiculous football talent. They guy has absolutely everything an attacker could want on his game. Strong, quick, agile, two footed, skillful and has an abundance of technical ability.

Sadly his hunger, confidence and consistency don't match his ability.

I'll remember him for the seal dribble against Arsenal and his beastly displays during the 09/10 and 10/11 campaigns. The roasting of Clichy will live long in the memory.

Nani shows glimpses of talent, all he needs is continuity. I reckon LVG should give him three months to prove himself and, if he doesn't, send him packing.

Three more months!?

What about the other 84 months he's had here?

It's a shame it's only a loan move.

He'll tear it up there. I bet he'll stay somewhere in Portugal after the loan too. He can get Champions League football, stay in the national team, and have a Simao-like resurrection. Or he'll just dribble straight into defenders and skew shots into the 50th row, who really knows?

Agreed, hopefully it'll lead into a permanent move for him.

 

We'd love to keep him, but his wages aren't compatible with our financial capabilities. I expect it will either recover him for United, or generate better offers for next year.

If was less injury prone and more consistent then he'd be one of the best wide players in the league today.

He was a beast between 2010-2012. Such a shame he couldn't kick on from there.
