Manchester United winger Luis Nani is the latest player to join the club's growing injury list, according to reports in a national newspaper today.

The Daily Mirror cites Portuguese press speculation in claiming that the 25-year-old could be out of action for as long as two months, with suggestions that the former Sporting Lisbon starlet underwent a scan on Wednesday following the reduction of swelling on his foot.

A 51-cap international, Nani limped off after 75 minutes at the Emirates Stadium, and left the capital with a protective brace around the problem area.

United won the game 2-1, with goals from Antonio Valencia and Danny Welbeck proving the difference after Robin Van Persie had equalised in the second-half.

The report claims Nani was told to stretch his leg during a two-hour train journey back to Manchester, but the Red Devils are yet to disclose any further details on the injury, with Nani now a major doubt to face Liverpool at Anfield in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday.

A broken metatarsal is seen as the worst possible scenario, whilst fears that the player has damaged ligaments in the foot are also starting to grow.
