Fergie's biggest mistake? Man Utd to dump Nani

Zenit plan swoop on Man Utd winger Nani

Zenit St Petersburg have joined Spurs in pursuit of Manchester United winger Nani.

United are preparing to offload Nani who was left out of their win at Fulham.

The Russian club a considering a £25 million bid for Nani, who has yet to agree a new contract at Old Trafford, according to the Daily Mail.

The Portugal player’s representatives reportedly met Zenit counterparts in Amsterdam on Monday to outline a deal.

"The news about Nani is true," Zenit coach Luciano Spalletti said earlier this month.

"Everything will depend on how much players cost because we won’t pay excessive amounts of money."

United boss Alex Ferguson has splashed out £45m on five players, including Robin van Persie, and club owners the Glazers are keen to trim the squad.

Nani, 25, has become frustrated at the collapse of talks over a new four-year deal.

He has two years left on his £90,000-a-week deal but wants in excess of £130,000.
