Russian champions Zenit St Petersburg have made a bid for Manchester United winger Nani, according to reports in Russia.

News agency R-Sport say a source close to the Russian Premier League club has confirmed their interest in signing the 25-year-old Portugal international.

Earlier this summer Zenit boss Luciano Spalletti admitted his interest in signing Nani, and it now appears he intends to nail down a deal before the Russian transfer window closes on September 10.

Nani has made 195 appearances for Manchester United, scoring 36 goals, since signing from Sporting Lisbon in the summer of 2007.
