Manchester United winger Nani has reportedly been told that he will not be sold during this transfer window. The Portugal international had been heavily linked with interest from Russian sides Zenit St Petersburgand Anzhi Makhachkala after numerous talks over a contract extension with United broke down over the summer. Zenit were linked earlier this month with a possible £25million bid.
Nani has been offered a new deal with United worth £130,000 a week – an increase of almost 50 percent on the £90,000 a week he currently earns. However, he responded during the summer with proposals of his own and a date of 15 July for the situation to be resolved. United’s response was to put talks on hold and reports last week suggested he could be on his way out of Old Trafford before the transfer window closes later today.
The latest reports suggest that both Nani and United have agreed to resume talks once the transfer window has closed and that there is no chance of him leaving the club at present.
Nani’s current deal expires in 2014 and it is expected that any new deal will run to 2016.
