Manchester United's Luis Nani has signed a new five-year contract following uncertainty over his future.
The news was initially brokered by Juventus director general Giuseppe Marotta, who told Media Premium last week: “He’s renewed his contract with Manchester United and we never negotiated for him.”
This news wasn't official however, and at the time simply speculation.
Nani's future at the reigning champions looked bleak following an injury-hit season and even when he was fit, the Portuguese struggled to showcase his talent due to erratic and inconsistent performances. Inconsistency ironically defining his time at the Red Devils.
Arsenal, Juventus and Zenit St Petersburg are just a few of the sides to hold an interest in United's mercurial winger over the past year or so, but United boss David Moyes has presumably dashed any chance of a transfer in the foreseeable future.
Nani was joyous over his new contract, telling the club's official website: "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."
Moyes added: "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."
