What do you do about a problem called Nani?
Probably the most frustrating player at United, Nani constantly flatters to deceive.
Blessed with everything it takes to be world-class, the Portuguese international has produced two labored seasons after initially promising so much following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Granted, the rest of the United midfield have not been much better, with the likes of Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia also disappointing.
But it’s Nani who may well be man to go if Sir Alex decides to have a summer shake-up.
Additions to the midfield are likely and there must be a fall guy to balance the books.
After United's FA Cup elimination, the 26-year-old will hope to get some EPL starts and make a big impact with games fast running out.
Home matches with Aston Villa and Swansea could produce big returns for the midfielder, provided he is named to the team.
