Losing the first game of the season isn`t something that Manchester United are accustomed to.

In a season whereby every dropped point could be crucial as we go head to head with our neighbours, Manchester City, and with the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Newcastle lurking in the wings, defeats are sure to come with an inquisition.

This morning, with the tabloid press hitting the news stands, it looks as if Nani has been picked as a potential scapegoat.

Once again, in the light of the failure on Monday night, talk has been resurrected relating to the Portuguese internationals future.

Giving the impression that the tabloid press are desperately trying to rock the United boat, comments are produced, from an unnamed source at Old Trafford that read,

“The club did not think his form at the end of last season put him in a very strong bargaining position over a new deal. Monday was hardly his best either.”

“There was an intention to get him on a new four-year contract.”

“But initial demands from Nani`s side were way over the top. Right now United are happy to leave it until next summer unless his demands are dropped dramatically. But they won`t sell unless silly money comes in.”

Okay, Nani might not have uprooted trees with his performance at Goodison Park but neither did several others.

My fear is that every time United suffer a setback the tabloid media re going to turn to Nani and make him the whipping-boy, something that appears to be a national trait don`t you think!
