Manchester City is on the alert after winger Nani expressed discontent with his current contract at Manchester United, and are planning a £40 million offer for the star, according to reports.
Yesterday news broke that Nani felt his performance warrants a wage on par with top flight members of the United squad, and wanted a £30,000 a week increase. Sir Alex Ferguson reportedly refused to make any negotiations over the contract which was only signed last season.
Nani tried to disparage rumours of a move away from United, writing on his twitter, “I've seen some false reports on the press. I want you to know that you will hear the truth from me. Love MU”.
But this update only served to increase speculation Nani is on the way out of Old Trafford, with Manchester City reportedly willing to give the winger the wage increase he desires.
City manager Roberto Mancini is said to be planning a multi million pound swoop over the transfer market in the summer, with the side’s owners desperate to add a Barclays Premier League trophy to their cabinet.
City are not opposed to signing players from their bitter cross town rivals, securing Carlos Tevez in the last summer transfer period. Should Nani be willing to listen, City will no doubt have the cash to bring him across town to Eastlands.
