''WE DIDN'T SIGN NANI BECAUSE OF HIS 'UNREAL' WAGE DEMAND'' -ZENIT ST PETERSBURG'


Gist as it that Nani's 'unreal' wage demands wrecked any chance of the Manchester United winger moving to big-spenders Russian Zenit St Petersburg this summer.

The Russian club’s director-general Maxim Mitrofanov claimed on Thursday that the deal had hit a brick wall.

The Russian side splashed 90million euros on Hulk and Witsel but would not stretch further to accommodate the winger's request.

Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young are ahead of Nani in the pecking order on the wings, while the arrivals of Robin van Persie and Shinji Kagawa this summer have further shunted Nani away from the action.

The Portugal international was expected to sign a new deal this summer and cement his place as a key part of Ferguson's future plans.

But the 25-year-old has not managed to find an agreement and sources close to the player have revealed that he has been left feeling unwanted.

Nani has yet to agree a new deal at Old Trafford after asking for £130,000 a week.

Nani was dropped following United's defeat at Everton in their opening match of the Barclays Premier League season and has not yet forced his way back in.

The former Sporting Lisbon ace came off the bench to replace Kagawa with 29 minutes remaining in the 3-2 win at Southampton last Sunday in his only other appearance for United this season.
