Nani has agreed a contract extension with Manchester United, according to Juventus sporting director Giuseppe Marotta.

The Portuguese international was rumoured to be on his way out of Old Trafford this summer with both Juventus and Monaco interested.

David Moyes was reportedly happy to cash in on Nani, providing a club met the £11m valuation of the player.

However, with just one year left on his contract, no club was happy to meet that price and the transfer window slammed shut with Nani still firmly a Manchester United player.

It now seems that Moyes has taken action to keep the 26-year-old at the Premier League champions by offering him a new deal.

Marotta has now confirmed as much, saying Nani has agreed to stay at Manchester United whilst also saying they never attempted to sign him.

He is quoted in the Daily Star as saying: "He has renewed his contract with Manchester United and we never negotiated for him."

Nani was thought to be ostracised from the squad following the acquisition of Wilfried Zaha but after starting against Liverpool on Sunday, it looks as though he may have won over the respect of Moyes.

The player struggled for consistency under Sir Alex Ferguson last season but could find redemption under United's new manager.
