Portuguese international winger Luis Nani says he is 'very happy' at Manchester United, and is not looking to leave Old Trafford this summer.

The 25-year-old has been in extensive negotiations with the club over extending his current contract, and confirmed that talks with Sir Alex Ferguson, and the club's hierarchy are ongoing.

After arriving in England from Sporting Lisbon in 2007, Nani has established himself as an important player in United's first-team squad, turning in a series of scintillating performances over the past 18 months.

Despite his impressive form, there has been speculation suggesting that the midfielder could be sold in the summer, following the arrival of Japanese playmaker Shinji Kagawa.

But, Nani insists he has the backing of Ferguson, and is looking forward to the new campaign with the Red Devils.

"We will see [what the future holds]," he told the Times of India. "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."

Speaking about the disappointment of last season's Premier League title surrender on the final day of the 2011-12 campaign, Nani revealed he is even more determined to make up for the heartache and can't wait to get going again next term.

"That's football - you are always going to suffer disappointments and you just have to deal with them," he continued. "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."
