NANI had an amazing bust-up with a young Manchester United player to put his Old Trafford career in the balance.

The Portuguese winger, 25, initially had a verbal row with reserve team midfielder Davide Petrucci, 20, after a training-ground tackle at the club’s Carrington centre.
United’s players had to step in to separate the pair after the confrontation later escalated and Nani allegedly threw a punch at Petrucci.
The confrontation will not help Nani’s career at Old Trafford. He is already frustrated at not being offered a new contract to improve his current deal.
Nani is on £90,000 a week. He was looking at a new four-year deal worth £130,000 a week but the United board rejected those demands to leave the player in limbo.
They would surely now listen to offers of £25million for the Portuguese player when the transfer window opens in January.
