Wouldn’t fans in Manchester love to see this at Old Trafford?

Nani was sent out on loan to Sporting CP in Portugal when Louis van Gaal took over at Manchester United, and the winger is making the most of his time back home.

After scoring four times for United over his last two seasons, Nani has already found the back of the net eight times for Sporting, none prettier than this gem against Gil Vicente.

Up 1-0, the Portuguese winger took the ball off the bounce and fired home a screaming left-footed shot that found the top corner of the net. Sporting would win the match 2-0 and currently sit third on the Portuguese Primeira Liga table.

Nani’s loan spell expires this summer, and it will be interesting to see if he returns to Manchester to play for the man who sent him away. United have been criticized for their play this year, and Nani is a player that always brings a touch of flair with him onto the pitch.
