The 25-year-old has reportedly been offered a £130,000 salary by the club but it seems that the Portuguese international wants a significantly improved offer.
Manchester City have offered a number of their players salaries in the vicinity of £200,000 and have inflated the wage market in the Manchester area.
Despite the contractual wrangles, Nani insists that he is happy to stay at Old Trafford but he will not have his hand forced by his employers. Having won the Premier League and the Champions League winner in the past, he believes that he has won everything he can at the club and he would not be averse to a new challenge in a different league.
"I have fulfilled five seasons with United and obtained all the titles," he said in an interview with Portuguese television station RTP.
"I am happy but I am not saying anything about my future. I am studying all openings. Football is not all about only England or Spain. It's possible to fight for success in other countries.
"My agent is waiting for news about United. We have presented a counter-offer and now it depends what the club thinks."
In the most recent season, he saw his side lose out on the Premier League crown on the final day due to goal difference. Nani's contribution was reduced in the previous campaign as in comparison to the 2010/11 season when he was the star midfielder in the league racking up 14 assists and leading various statistical charts.
Right now he is currently with the Portugal national team and is preparing for the upcoming Euro 2012 tournament. He is keen to banish the painful memories associated with the last-minute heartbreak suffered by the title loss and he believes that helping his nation win the tournament in Poland and Ukraine would be a perfect tonic.
"It was a pain to miss the league title in the last minutes of the last match. City had incredible luck.
"Now I want this Euro to be my Euro.
"I think we can win it. If I perform well, the better the team will be.
"Cristiano Ronaldo and I are the best pair of wingers in the world."
As he had been ruled out of the 2010 World Cup with a shoulder injury, the upcoming European Championship will be his first major international tournament as a senior player in the national team. Portugal have been drawn in the 'Group of Death' alongside Holland, Denmark and Germany.
