Red Devils snubbed by former player.
Manchester United look to have failed in their efforts to bring Nani back to Old Trafford from his loan with Sporting Lisbon this January, according to the Metro.
The Portuguese international has recently been linked with a surprise return to United after some fine form during his spell away from the club on loan, but it seems unlikely that this move will take place.
Nani is happy with Sporting as he enjoys an improvement in form after a difficult few years in the Premier League, which saw him suffer a considerable dip in form.
It is likely that the 27-year-old will remain in Portugal for the remainder of this season before deciding on his long-term future.
