Portuguese winger hoping to secure new deal at Old Trafford.
Check in to Manchester United vs Reading
Manchester United’s Nani believes he still has a future at the club and is determined to prove his worth to manager Sir Alex Ferguson according to The Independent.
The Portuguese winger has found himself largely marginalised this season as Ferguson has preferred a more narrow formation in the midfield as he looks to accommodate the likes of Shinji Kagawa and Wayne Rooney.
Reports in recent months had suggested that Nani may be on his way out of the club after Ferguson finally ran out of patience with the player’s inconsistent performances.
The winger’s contract is set to expire at the end of next season, and it is thought the club would prefer to move Nani on this summer rather than lose the player for nothing in a year’s time.
Nani is determined to prove his worth to the Old Trafford side and is hoping to persuade the club to offer him a new contract.
The tricky midfielder recently made a rare start for United in their Champions League tie against Real Madrid and performed admirably until a controversial red card saw Nani given his marching orders.
‘I want to show the manager he can trust me’, said Nani.
‘I want to show him my contribution can help win games. So I’ll keep working hard to make sure I’m ready to respond every time I get a chance.’
