Nani talk delights Ronny

Cristiano Ronaldo would welcome the arrival at Old Trafford of Sporting Lisbon winger Nani, the highly-rated teenager being linked with a move to United.

It is reported Nani, a 19-year-old right midfielder famed for his pace, skill and acrobatic celebrations, is a target for the Reds despite Sporting insisting he is not for sale.

Ronaldo, who made the same move three years ago in 2003, favours a greater Portuguese influence in Manchester. "I'd like to see Nani and more Portuguese at United," Cristiano was quoted as saying.

But, if Sporting have their way, Nani will sign a new contract and remain at Estádio José Alvalade. "We are not speaking about this," a spokesman for the club said this week. "Nani has a contract with us until June 2008."

Ronaldo scored twice for Portugal in Saturday's 3-0 win over Azerbaijan and wants to help his side to another triumph over Poland on Wednesday.

"I want to give a similar showing or even improve still because I can always improve," he said. "Poland will be completely different, they have a better team with stronger players. But we must do everything to win."
