According to the latest report, Luis Nani is set to leave the Red Devils either in the winter transfer window or after the end of the season.
The Portuguese has been embroiled in a lengthy wage-war with the club, but it is now understood that the 19-times English champions are willing to listen to offers for the 25-year-old, amid interest from Italian giants AC Milan.
The latter was part of the Bilbao team that trashed United in the Europa League last season and is billed as one the best youngsters in the game today. His pace and skills slaughtered the United’s defence and the youngster should have no problems settling in at the Theatre of Dreams.
Primarily deployed as a left-winger, Muniain can play all along the attacking line and has a very high work-ethic.
Although it will be hard for United to meet Muniain’s buy-out clause of £32million, my view is the club should take the risk of investing such a large sum on a teenager. The player can come out a better player than Nani and make the Red Devils’ attack arguably the most daunting one in England.
Nani has been largely unspectacular on the pitch and if United can replace with him with a player of Muniain’s quality, it is highly unlikely that the Old Trafford faithful will miss the ‘wannabe Cristiano Ronaldo’.
Yes, he might have been United’s most important player almost 12 months ago, but his game lacks consistency. He can be phenomenal against one opponent, but completely anonymous against the next.
At times, he crosses and shots are way off the mark and at the age of 25, consistency is key for a player like him.
What do you think, should United sell Nani and attempt to sign Muniain?
