Manchester United winger Nani is thought to want a solution to his contract situation, with a move away from the club on the cards should nothing be resolved in the next fortnight The Sun state.
The tricky wideman has grown in importance at Old Trafford and was impressive in Portugal’s march to the Euro 2012 semi-finals.
However, Nani only has two years left on his contract with Sir Alex Ferguson’s men, and feels that he is entitled to a new deal and a salary increase.
He is currently earning approximately £90,000-a-week, but is keen to increase this by £30,000 – £40,000.
Despite Nani being keen to increase the length of his contract, United are now considering their options. They have already signed Shinji Kagawa this summer and are also keen to add Porto winger James Rodriguez to their contingent.
Along with existing widemen Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young, Ferguson appears to have an abundance of talent on the flanks.
Nani is valued at around the £25 million mark, and Juventus are known to be monitoring the situation; it remains to be seen whether United will look to extend the player’s stay at the club or cash-in on him before his value drops.
