Nani will return to United at the end of the season, according to former Sporting chief Paulo De Alvandro.
The Portuguese winger has impressed since his move back to Portugal, and is showing the kind of ability that many at Old Trafford haven’t seen for a while.
De Alvandro claims Louis Van Gaal will want the 28-year-old back at United having seen him enjoy a sensational start to the new season.
As quoted on the A Bola website, he said: “It is inevitable that Manchester United will want the player back at the end of the season.
“Van Gaal will be sorry to not have gambled on him sooner.”
