PORTUGAL FORWARD NANI has revealed he is in negotiations with Manchester United over a new deal at the club.

Nani’s future has been in doubt since United’s reported offer of a wage increase to £90,000 per week was turned down by his advisors, leading to a stalemate between both parties while the 25-year-old was on international duty at Euro 2012.

The winger is now enjoying a three-week break following Portugal’s semi-final exit at the tournament.

However, the former Sporting Lisbon man has said his agent has resumed talks with the club over a new deal, while also claiming he is happy at the Red Devils.

“We will see,” he told the Times of India when asked about his future with the Old Trafford club.

“I am very happy at Man United and have been there five years and won every title.

“The manager has great faith in me and that’s what is important. My agent is negotiating and we’ll see what happens.”

Nani spoke of his disappointment at losing out on the English Premier League title to rivals Manchester City on the final day of last season.

“That’s football – you are always going to suffer disappointments and you just have to deal with them,” he said.

“Football is like life and so there will be times when you suffer a big disappointment.

“It hurt to miss the league title in the last minutes, City had incredible luck that day. Hopefully next season is our turn and it’s up to us to make that happen.”
