Luis Nani will only agree to leave Manchester United this week should the club offer him a significant payoff, it has been claimed.

Russian giants Zenit St Petersburg are interested in signing the Portugal international, and his future in Manchester looks increasingly doubtful after his omission from the weekend squad to face Fulham.

The 25-year-old did start against Everton last Monday, but only because Antonio Valencia was forced to deputise at right-back, and Nani failed to make a contribution of note.

Sir Alex Ferguson's summer acquisition of Shinji Kagawa and the resurgence of Valencia last term suggest Nani can no longer be guaranteed a first-team spot, and his future may be away from Old Trafford.

According to, Manchester United are giving serious consideration to cashing-in on Nani, but the winger would demand £5 million from the club were he to be sold.

Nani was the club's Player of the Season when they won the Premier League in 2011, but failed to reach the same heights as Manchester City claimed the title last term.
