Manchester United midfielder Nani has said that he wants to stay with the Old Trafford club by signing a new contract. It is thought that Manchester United are ready to offer Nani a contract extension that will keep him at the club for the long-term.
Many expected Nani to become the next Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United due to the large number of similarities both players have had in their careers. However, Nani has failed to reach the extraordinary heights of Ronaldo, but he has been an extremely good player for United over the years. He is set to start on the crucial Manchester derby ahead of Antonio Valencia.
Nani has won every major trophy with Manchester United since his arrival of his seasons ago. He is looking forward to winning the next Premier league title in his trophy cabinet, but wants to focus on the Manchester derby for now. United have the opportunity to close in on the title if they managed to avoid defeat at the Etihad stadium. Even though United could have sealed the title by now, they have made many mistakes in the last few matches, which has put them in a very compromising position. However, Nani believes that United will come out strong.
“I left Portugal for a great personal challenge and to improve as a player. There have been times when it’s not been easy but they treat me well here and, step by step, I am fulfilling my dreams. Manchester United is my home. It has been a season of many ups and downs but our destiny still remains in our own hands. We’re not going to City in fear or living with pressure. Manchester United players are equipped to handle it,” Nani said ahead of the Manchester showdown on April 30.
