Old Trafford winger told contract offer will not be increased.
Manchester United have made winger Nani a take-it-or-leave it contract offer and could be forced to sell him in the summer if he turns down new four-year terms.
Nani’s current deal expires at the end of next season and United are reluctant to lose him on a free transfer. They will be forced to sell the Portuguese international wideman this summer if pen is not put to paper on the new terms at Old Trafford.
Nani is understood to have held talks with United’s hierarchy last week over a £130,000 a-week deal, but it was without success as the Old Trafford club are refusing to budge on their £90,000 a-week offer, according to The Sun.
His contract situation has alerted Real Madrid, who have been linked with a summer move for the Portuguese international as part of Jose Mourinho’s rebuilding plans at the Bernabeu following a dismal season in La Liga.
The 26-year-old Nani has been with United since 2007 when he joined in a £14million deal from Sporting Lisbon. He was a regular for much of his time at the club but a combination of injuries and the arrival of Robin Van Persie and emergence of Danny Welbeck as a major part of the team have restricted Nani’s game time this season.
Despite bringing in young England star Wilfreid Zaha from Crystal Palace in the summer to occupy a wide role, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to keep hold of Nani. But his hand may be forced if there is no resolution to the contract talks before the end of the season.
