Just when you thought you'd heard the last of him.

Portuguese flop Nani has spent the last season on loan at Sporting Lisbon, with Man Utd subsidising his wages as part of a deal which saw Marcos Rojo join United last summer. 

The loan spell is about to come to an end, but Nani is now surplus to requirements in a squad which also features Depay, Valencia, Januzaj, Young and Di Maria all able to play on the wings. 

Here comes the problem. Moyes signed Nani on a 5 year deal to the tune of £110,000 a week, meaning if United are to see out the remainder of his contract, it's going to cost the club £17m.

Van Gaal knows he must find a buyer for Nani this summer, but wage demands are likely to put off most clubs.
