End of the road for Nani at Man Utd

Fergie to replace Portuguese winger with Young against Fulham

Sir Alex Ferguson will wield the axe on Nani after his poor performance during Manchester United's shock 1-0 defeat at Everton on Monday.

Ashley Young is set to replace Nani for Saturday’s visit of Fulham, The Sun (http://bit.ly/ML5iuQ) reported in an exclusive.

The Portuguese winger will become the first high-profile casualty after United suffered their first opening day league defeat in eight years.

Nani can also forget about a new contract — or being allowed to leave on the cheap.

“The club did not think his form at the end of last season put him in a very strong bargaining position over a new deal. Monday was hardly his best either,” the report added quoted unnamed United sources.

Nani, 25, has become frustrated at the collapse of talks over a new four-year deal.

He has two years left on his £90,000-a-week deal but wants in excess of £130,000.

Zenit St Petersburg are interested but United will not consider selling unless they get an offer of more than £25m.
