Manchester United winger Nani has been reassured of his Manchester United future by Sir Alex Ferguson, according to Sky Sports. With the arrival of Ashley Young from Aston Villa it has been suggested that the Nani could be on his way out of the Manchester club.
Fergie has quashed these rumours by insisting that the Portuguese international is still an integral part of his plans.
“Nani did really well the whole of last season, but (Antonio) Valencia came back and his form was so good it was difficult to leave him out of the team,” Ferguson said. “We will be challenging next season and will play a lot of games.”
