Nani enjoyed an outstanding 2010/2011 campaign.
Chipping in with assists as well as goals, United stormed to the Premier League title so it was expected that the winger would build on this the following season.
Whilst he started well with memorable goals against Arsenal and Chelsea, injuries as well as stern competition from Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia meant that he didn’t quite hit the heights of the previous campaign.
At the tail part of this past season, it was reported Nani was ready to put pen to paper on a new deal.
Nani has always been on the cusp of breaking into the world’s elite and it had been hoped that he would do so at United, following in the footsteps of country man Cristiano Ronaldo, but Nani has now cast doubt on his United future, telling Portuguese TV station RTP a move to another country may be on the cards:
“I have had five seasons at Manchester United and have won all the titles.
“Now I am really happy but I don’t know about my future. Now I will study opportunities. Football is not only about England or Spain. It is possible to enjoy success in other countries.
“My agent is waiting on news about United. We have presented a counter-offer and now we are waiting on an offer from the club.”
In the interview Nani also spoke on the losing the title to Man City on the last day of the season as well as the Euros and his goals for the future:
“It was a great pain to miss the Premier League title in the final minutes of the match. City were incredible with their luck. I can only hope that this Euro Championship is my Euro, and I am working hard for that with Portugal.
“My challenge is to be the best, be the No.1 and show that on the field. Myself and Cristiano make up two of the best wingers in the world and our statistics for our club show that.”
