Nani calling Mourinho or Mourinho calling Nani?

Manchester United and Portugese winger Nani has stated his desire to play under Jose Mourinho. The comments have led to speculation that perhaps Nani is not happy at Manchester United and is looking to move to Madrid under the guidance of manager Jose Mourinho.

Sources claim that Nani's happiness took a hit at the club after being omitted from the starting lineup to face Barcelona in the Champions League final. The number 17 said that "it left a sour taste" in his mouth, esepcially after such a great season. The 24 year old scored a host of goals in the Premier League, bagging a number of assists including the spectacular ball which saw Rooney finish with a bicycle.

However United supporters would take a very different approach to such speculation, claiming that it's Nani's desire to have Mourinho at United, rather than the winger's want to ove overseas. With Sir Alex's dynasty slowly coming to an end, the average football fan will be asking who will be worthy to fill his position. With Jose Mourinho making it clear that he would love to coach in Manchester, Nani's desire may just be a calling to Jose after all.

With Ashley Young moving into the limelight, Nani may just indeed be on the way out. Juventus have also come calling in the recent weeks, but a lack of European football would most likely see the United winger shun the Turin Giants
