After shining for United in the latter half of the season, Nani is ready to stand up and become one of United’s main men.

Injury held Nani back for large parts of the season but once he returned he was near unplayable and finally began showing his true worth,

‘Everyone is excited with me because they didn’t know if I could be the player everyone expected. Now everyone starts to believe I can be a very good player.’

Just hope he can carry on from where he left off as he was definitely an ace in the hole last season.

Michael Carrick has been ruled out of the season opener against Newcastle with an ankle injury. He was taken off against the Airtricity XI and the club have confirmed he picked up a knock.

This is a big season for Carrick as he has a lot of fans to win over again after falling into somewhat of a slump.

Darron Gibson is confident he can live up to the next Scholes tag this season and justify his place in the team. Sir Alex talked up the midfielder after the game on Wednesday likening him to Paul Scholes in terms of his goal scoring from midfield and the young Irish man is ready to answer Sir Alex’s call.

“I’ve got one foot in the door and hopefully this year I can kick on and play a lot more games and establish myself.”

The comings and goings at United have been confirmed as Danny Welbeck and Mame Biram Diouf are set to join Sunderland and Blackburn respectively but one player who won’t be leaving is Tom Cleverley. The midfielder shone during pre season and is set to stay at Old Trafford.

I wonder if it has anything to do with Anderson, Hargreaves and now Carrick being out?
