Nani ready to leave Man Utd after contract impasse
Wednesday 31 October 2012
Luis Nani will look to leave Manchester United in the summer after growing frustrated that the club has yet to come up a new contract the Portugal international feels is acceptable, the Daily Telegraph has reported.
Nani is out of contract in 2014 but will push to leave Old Trafford at the end of the current season having seen a move to Russian side Zenit St Petersburg collapse this summer after the 25-year-old proved reluctant to move to Russia, the newspaper adds.
Wages are however at the heart of the impasse between Nani and his current employers, with the sides said to be some distance apart as of their last negotiations. Nani is understood to have informed Sir Alex Ferguson that he is unlikely to sign a new deal. In reply, Ferguson informed Nani that he will be on the fringes of the first team unless he puts pen to paper.
Nani, a £17m signing from Sporting Lisbon in 2007, is expected to be part of the United XI that plays Chelsea on Wednesday evening in the Capital One Cup, a rematch of the weekend’s controversial league fixture that United won by the odd goal in five after Chelsea were reduced to nine men.
