It’s been a disappointing few days for Manchester United supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern with only the arrival of Marouane Fellaini to note following the closure of the summer transfer window.
Now Sky Sports report that Portuguese winger Nani has agreed a new five-year deal at Old Trafford to lighten the mood of grim looking Red Devils fans sat around the bar.
The former Sporting Lisbon man got his first taste of competitive action this season in United’s 1-0 defeat by Liverpool an Anfield.
And new United manager David Moyes has revealed that he is delighted to have tied down the winger on a new deal. The 26-year-old would have been available on a free transfer at the end of the season.
Moyes said: “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.”
Nani arrived at Old Trafford in 2007, and he has won the Champions League, four Premier League titles and two League Cups with United.
“Playing at United has been a fantastic experience for me. When I came to the club, I never imagined the success we have enjoyed,” said Nani.
“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.”
