Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has denied that Nani could be on his way out of Old Trafford in January amid reported interest from Arsenal.
The winger is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury but Ferguson insists he will be back in the frame for his side once he recovers.
“He’s injured,” Ferguson told Man Utd’s official website.
“His contract’s not up for a year and a half. Yes, [he has a future at the club]. Why would I want to let him go?
“Obviously his people have been negotiating with [chief executive] David [Gill] about a new contract but I don’t know what stage we are at with that. But we won’t be letting him go.
“We need a Nani. He offers something different from the other players. He’s an incredible talent, the boy’s a great talent.
“Unfortunately, he’s injured at the moment so we sent him over to Dubai for a break and hoping a bit of warmth will help him in his recovery.
“He’s not far away but he’s far enough away. I don’t think I’ll get him back until probably the middle of January.”
