According to the Mail Online, Zenit St Petersburg are preparing a £25 million bid for Manchester United winger Nani.
United’s talks with the 25-year-old over a new deal at Old Trafford has so far failed to produce a renewal on Nani’s contract that runs out in two years time. Despite Nani been linked with a move to White Hart Lane only a few days ago, the player’s representatives have reportedly met Zenit officials in Amsterdam to discuss over a deal yesterday that would take him away from the Premier League.
Speaking earlier this month, Zenit coach Luciano Spalletti said of the player:
“The news about Nani is true. Everything will depend on how much players cost because we won’t pay excessive amounts of money.”
The Russian champions are now favourites to sign Nani after it was made clear he would have a fight on his hands getting into the first team at United this season after being left out against Fulham on Saturday.
