Manchester United could be missing star man Nani for five weeks.

The Daily Star says the gaping wound caused by Jamie Carragher in Liverpool's 3-1 Premier League win on Sunday is so bad doctors have still not been able to stitch it up.

Carragher's crude tackle left Nani with a wound so deep it was down to the bone.

A source said: "It hasn't been stitched yet, it's that bad.

"He won't be back any time soon and the situation doesn't look good at all."
