A Nani Climbdown?

A Nani Climbdown?

Is Nani a worried man?

With rumours of Nani making way for Ashley Young this weekend being followed up by reports that United are refusing to play ball with his contract demands and possibly thinking of off-loading the player, the Nani camp appear to have reacted in a positive way.

Reports are filtering through that Nani has lowered his salary demands. Reportedly on £90,000 a week, Nani is reported to have wanted £130,000 a week, a fee United refused to meet.

As for a revised figure, that it would appear remains privy to only a select few!

Wouldn't pay him a tenner a week based on his last performance he should pay us compensation for having to watch.

sell him and use the money to get Fellaini...thats what we need.

Give him a performance related deal, maybe that will drive him to be more consistent :P We could do with fellaini or someone of that ilk and quality in midfield however I wouldn't want to lose Nani just yet but unless he can prove to be consistent this season I wouldn't have no issue of getting rid next season.

Ye sell him, get Fellaini. Nani is overrated and is paid too much as it is.

I wouldn't want nani leaving MANUTD cus he's one of the entertaining players we've had since CR7. He's still young and i have no doubt he'll keep improving per game. Remember CR7 never became that superb a player until after some few years at OT. I still remember some games he won for last season and other seasons so he'll still, and will always be a first team player at OT. 90k per week is no bad pay for a player like him anyway.

Serginho, the issue is Nani isn't a Cristiano Ronaldo and will never be one. It took Ronaldo 3 years of adjusting before he turned into the phenomenon he is today with Nani we're now entering his 5th year at the club and so far his done very little to warrant the 90k a week and 17 mil we paid for him let alone his 130k demands. He can change a game at an instant however he needs to a game changing player throughout a season rather than for 5 minutes in a single game and until then he's never going to justify the money we spent on him or warrant the money he wants. Don't get me wrong I like Nani, however he's not young anymore, at 25 most players are entering their prime, the years where they're at the pinnacle of their development. Nani however is still struggling with a consistency, something you expect of a 16-23 year old footballer. I reckon we could still recoup 20 mil for him and get back our initial outlay for him in the event that this year he doesn't mature, develop and be consistent or doesn't budge on his wage demands.

Get Fellaini? LOL! How much exactly do you think Everton would want for what is effectively their best and most important player? No offence guys, but you don't have £30m to spend on another player, and your manager has publicly stated that your transfer business is done for this window. Of course, he's been know to be "economical avec la verite" in the past, but this time I believe him. There's only so much debt your balance sheet can take.
