It was a crucial match, one that saw United blast the German side 5-0 to secure a berth in the knockout stage. Nani scored the fifth goal. Perhaps this was a sign that manager David Moyes was warming to the Portuguese winger?
To recap, then: Nani played the entire match and scored in a wildly successful Champions League shift. Four days later, he was deployed as a time-wasting substitute in a match where United lost more ground in the Premier League table to the three clubs at the top (Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City).
No wonder news and transfer rumours swirl around Nani. United and Moyes cannot seem to decide what to do with him.
