Manchester United appear to have lost patience with Portuguese international Nani, and could be set to cut their losses on the winger this summer, according to The Mirror.

Talks between Nani and the club have broken down in recent weeks over a new contract, with Nani's wage demands believed to be the stumbling block. Nani has just one year left on his current deal, and Sir Alex Ferguson may be tempted to part with 26-year-old midfielder when the transfer window re-opens.

Russian giants Zenit St Petersburg and Italian outfit Inter Milan expressed their interest in Nani last summer, and whether they reignite their interest remains to be seen. However, United are reportedly willing to offload Nani for £14m, a price that could tempt many.

Nani was bought by the Champions elect for a whopping fee of €25m back in 2007, and was expected to help fill the void left by compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo, when he departed for Real Madrid.

However, his inconsistency has been frustrating for United fans and after another unspectacular season, United and Nani look set to go their separate ways.

With Wilfried Zaha arriving from Crystal Palace this summer, Ferguson could be tempted to offer the erratic winger a chance to return to Portugal with FC Porto in a cash-plus-player deal with Colombian starlet James Rodriguez moving to Old Trafford.

Either way, Nani's Manchester United future looks bleak, and it will come as little surprise if he's not at Old Trafford come the start of the 2013/14 season.
