Manchester United winger Nani has ended speculation about his future by signing a new five-year contract with the Old Trafford club.
Nani signed for Manchester United in May 2007, and helped the club win four Premier League titles, two League Cups, a FIFA Club World Cup and the UEFA Champions League in his six seasons at Old Trafford.
There was plenty of speculation last season that Nani was to move back to the European continent to sign with another club, but having stayed at United now that the transfer window has closed, the Portuguese winger is looking forward to next season. He said:
“Playing at United has been a fantastic experience for me. When I came to the Club, I never imagined the success we have enjoyed. Training every day with top players who want to win trophies every year is a great motivation to me. I’m very happy that the new manager has shown this faith in me and I’m looking forward to helping the team compete for more honours this season.”
Manchester United manager David Moyes is pleased at Nani’s decision to sign a new contract.
“I’m really pleased Nani has re-signed for the next five years. He has great ability and experience beyond his 26 years. I’ve been impressed with his approach to training and look forward to working with him in the coming seasons.”
