Louis Van Gaal Desperate To Get Nani Back To Manchester United After On-Loan Winger’s Brilliant Run Of Form

Reds Devils want Nani back at Old Trafford as Van Gaal looks to make new formation work.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is very keen to recall winger Nani from his loan spell at Sporting Lisbon in January, according to GOAL.

Nani only joined the Portuguese outfit 12 weeks ago, but his form has been excellent and has forced Van Gaal to take notice.

The 27-year-old has scored three goals and produced one assist in four Champions League games. He has also netted twice in eight Primeira Liga matches.

Nani moved to Sporting on a season-long loan as part of a complex deal which saw United sign Marcos Rojo for £16m in August.

Sporting did not pay a loan fee and United are still paying Nani’s wages.

The Red Devils are confident that they can break Nani’s contract and bring him back to Old Trafford, but it would seem that the final decision would ultimately rest with the player.

Van Gaal recently switched to a 4-1-4-1 formation after dumping the 3-5-2 which he began he season with.

The Dutchman’s new system is better suited to genuine wingers like Nani.

Nani has over three years left to run on his contract with United, so a resurrection of his Old Trafford career is a distinct possibility.
