Not only will Nani be dropped against Fulham this weekend, but he can also forget about a new contract, or being allowed to leave on the cheap according to the Sun.
A United source said the newspaper:
“The club did not think his form at the end of last season put him in a very strong bargaining position over a new deal. Monday was hardly his best either.”
Nani has become frustrated at the collapse of talks over a new four-year deal and the United source added:
“There was an intention to get him on a new four-year contract.
“But initial demands from Nani’s side were way over the top. Right now United are happy to leave it until next summer unless his demands are dramatically dropped. But they won’t sell unless silly money comes in.”
Nani has two years left on his £90,000-a-week deal but wants in excess of £130,000 a week.
Zenit St Petersburg are interested in the winger, but United will not consider selling unless they get an offer of more than £25million.
