Nani’s feud with Manchester United has intensified with the players future at the club growing increasingly uncertain.

According to the Mirror, United tried to sell the Portuguese winger to Zenit St Petersburg during the summer transfer window but after the move fell through, the Premier League giants have now told the 25-year-old to stop complaining about contract dispute with the club.

Nani has just under two years to run on his current deal and talks over an extension have stalled due to the players excessive wage demands.

The stand-off resulted in intense speculation over his future during the summer, and it’s understood United were keen to cash in and sell him to ambitious Russian outfit Zenit St Petersburg.

Nani has made it clear he feels mistreated by the club and has gone public on his frustration at not been given the pay-rise he feels he’s earned.

However, United have been left unimpressed by Nani’s claim that he’s ready to run down his contract and walk away on a free transfer when his current deal expires in 2014.

The Mirror claim that United officials have grown tired of his antics and have instructed him to stop complaining about his contract situation and concentrate on winning his place back in Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.

Nani has fallen out-of-favour with Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young, Danny Welbeck, Ryan Giggs and Shinji Kagawa all ahead of him in the pecking order.

He was left out of the squad that beat Fulham 3-2 on August the 25th as the club tried to find a buyer, but a deal couldn’t be completed and the Portuguese ace will remain at United until at least January, when the former champions will once again try to offload him unless there is a drastic turn of events.

    Excuse me, but is not the correct spelling FEUD, not fued as in the article header title.

    From the Collins English Dictionary:

    feud

    n
    1. long and bitter hostility between two families, clans, or individuals; vendetta
    2. a quarrel or dispute

    Also in the first sentence of the article, the same elementary school standard spelling error:

    Nani’s fued with Manchester United has intensified with the players future at the club growing increasingly uncertain.

    If the authoir of this article has difficulty spelling, he/she could you a ‘Spell Checker.’

    Now, about the article; Is not Nani being rather childish and even churlish in his attempts to blackmail Manchester United into paying him a much higher salary whereas his performances for the last 2 seasons would warrant a REDUCTION in salary.

    If Nani keeps up this media barrage against his owners, I can see Nani practicing his somersaults in the stands or if he’s anywhere close to being lucky on the reserves bench.

    What has happened to player LOYALTY?

      Here’s a thought… maybe you shouldn’t be such a tool and go around making spelling corrections to a blog post.

      It’s also “have” not “hasve”, you must have hit the a and the s with one keystroke. You should have proof read your contribution before hitting the “Submit Comment” button.

    Why is it being reported that united tried to offload Nani when in fact it was Zenit whoo tried pinching him. As a mark off respect to the player the club allowed Zenit to make contact over personal terms. Nani doesn’t want to leave and why would he; Old Trafford or some dark Russian shithole! Leave him be to concentrate on getting in form and back in the team I personally don’t want to see him doing flip celebrations for any other club

    He has done well overall for United, but his performances have always been so spotty.
    Even within his best match performances he’s always had those moments where you just shake your head.
    Personally, I don’t think he’s at the level that he can make excessive wage demands. He is not on the same level as other world class players.
