Manchester United winger Luís Nani could be the latest star player leaving Old Trafford. Nani is currently been linked with a move to Russian side Zenit St Petersburg. Zenit have confirmed there have been talks for signing the player.

Zenit are trying to seal the deal which could cost the Russian side £25 million to capture the Portuguese International. Zenit have already acquired Hulk and Axel Witsel for a combined €80 million.

United are lacking options on the wings with Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia only been their regular wingers apart from Nani. United's veteran Ryan Giggs can also play on the left wing but Sir Alex Ferguson cannot rely on Giggs as he is entering into his last year of top flight football.   

Nani was subbed during the United's first league game against Everton due to poor performance and then dropped from the next game. The Portuguese International came on for the final 30 minutes against Southampton last Sunday to help his side secure a thrilling victory.

"It's true we are negotiating for Nani and Moutinho, but Hulk and Witsel were our top priorities." Zenit general director Maxim Mitrofanov said.

With Russian Transfer window closing on Thursday, Nani's exit from old Trafford would be another big transfer on transfer deadline. The Portuguese International's exit could be a matter of worry for Ferguson as he would be left with very few options on the wings. Will Nani stay at Old Trafford or will he be Zenit's player? Come this Friday, all these questions will be answered.
