Portugese paper A Bola are claiming that Manchester United are willing to sacrafice Nani in order to sign Porto star James Rodriguez.

Nani’s fall from favour has been nothing short of spectacular, going from one of the club’s most influential players to barely on the fringes of the first team.

With his contract running out in 2014 and no new deal in sight, A Bola believe United will cash in on the star in order to help negotiate a deal for the 20 year old Rodriguez.

With his fee believed to be in the region of €45m, adding Nani to any potential deal would see the price decrease a fair bit leaving Nani agreeing personal terms with Porto as the only problem, the same stumbling block that ruined a potential move to Zenit St. Petersburg for the winger during the summer.
