Manchester United used the return of winger Nani with Portugal to Old Trafford last week to discuss his future with the club, as reported by the Daily Star.
The Portuguese international appeared in the 1-0 win against Argentina hosted at Man Utd’s stadium.
The 27 year old is currently on loan with Sporting Lisbon.
Since his return to his former side, he’s been in excellent form, scoring five goals in 16 matches.
This means that the Portuguese giants want him back on a permanent basis.
While Man Utd have no issue with moving the tricky wide player on, financial issues are holding the deal up.
Discussions after the win were intended to move that along.
There is an issue with Nani’s staggering £100,000 salary at Man Utd, which is too much for Sporting to consider paying.
But they also require the Old Trafford club to lower their £16 million valuation of the once highly rated talent.
