Man Utd willing to sell Nani to Real Madrid

Nani's future is in doubt at Manchester United. The Sunday Mirror says the Portuguese winger is unhappy that United have ­refused to offer him an ­improvement on the £70,000-a-week contract ­extension that he signed last March.

And with United set to ­complete the ­£15million ­signing of Ashley Young from Aston Villa now that the winger has ­returned from ­international duty with England, Sir Alex ­Ferguson could cash in on the 24-year-old if Real Madrid firm up interest in him by lodging a bid.

Nani was ­bitterly disappointed that ­Ferguson left him out of his team to face ­Barcelona in the ­Champions League last week at the end of a ­season which saw him named United's ­Player of the Year.

Ferguson opted for the ­industry of Antonio Valencia and Ji-sung Park on the flanks instead of the creativity of the Portuguese international.

Nani has found himself ­increasingly marginalised on the substitutes' bench since Valencia returned to full ­fitness following an horrific broken leg he suffered early in the season.

United value Nani at £40m.
