When on top form, no one can disagree that Nani is a world beater.
The problem lies in his inconsistency to maintain his top form, and after six frustrating seasons at United - it may now be time for the Red Devils and Nani to go their separate ways.
As a youngster he had shown promise of greatness but sadly his top performances have been fleeting and inconsistent which is what has led to his situation today.
21-year-old James Rodriguez however has been making waves in Porto and has been linked to United for some time now. He is already closing in on 100 appearances for his current club at such a young age which speaks volumes of his talent and potential.
He is a versatile player who can operate out on either wing or in the centre of midfield and given United has been having problems with their wing play this season, it would be a good idea to bring him in.
The starlet also thrives as a play-maker crafting out and assisting his teammates selflessly while occasionally netting goals himself. His eye for a pass, reading of the game and technical ability makes him an excellent player to have in the squad.
In the past he has even drawn comparisons to Ronaldo due to his fantastic dribbling and the pace at which he does it. He is able to control the ball well at top speed as well as react to various situations in the event if he needs to execute a pass or a shot. Not only that, the Colombian international is also able to convert goals from set pieces.
In all his most prized attribute lies in his creativity which the United midfield sorely lacks at times. Together with his youth, energy, pace and technical ability he should easily cement a starting-spot and make a meaningful contribution to the team.
If United are looking to offload Nani, then those funds could bring Rodriguez to the Theatre of Dreams. United fans will definitely have something to cheer about should Rodriguez become a Red Devil in the next transfer window.
