MANCHESTER United star Nani has been involved in a car crash with an unmarked police car.

The English Premier League player’s Bentley Continental was in collision with the unmarked police Ford Mondeo, which was responding to an emergency call on Friday evening in Stockport, Cheshire.

Neither driver was hurt but the passenger in the ­police car, a special constable, received minor injuries, Greater Manchester Police said. In line with normal procedure, the police driver has been suspended while an inquiry is carried out.

There was only minor damage to both vehicles. The Portuguese international, signed by United in 2007 for £25.5 million, was reportedly still in his training kit and returning home when the collision happened.

A spokeswoman for Greater Manchester Police said: “At about 6.40pm on Friday, an unmarked police car responding to an emergency call was travelling along Gatley road at the junction with Kingsway, Stockport. As the police car entered the junction it collided with a Bentley Continental. The passenger in the police car received ­minor injuries.”
