Manchester United star Nani has stated his delight at signing a new five-year contract at the Premier League champions.

The Portuguese international, who had been linked with a move away from Old Trafford during the summer, admitted he turned down a number of offers to commit his long-term future to the Red Devils.

Nani, speaking to the Daily Mirror, said after signing his new contract: "I am very content with my new deal at Manchester United.

"This summer was not easy but after a lot of thought and talking to David Moyes I believe it was the best solution.

"I feel I can offer many things to United. I had other important offers but without a sufficient challenge to make me want to leave United.

"The coach would not guarantee me a place in the XI more than any other player. I know I must work hard to get into this team.

"That is my objective for this season."

The 26-year-old moved to England from Sporting Lisbon in 2006 and has since gone onto win four Premier League titles, one Champions League and the League Cup.

Nani, who returned from a groin injury against Liverpool last Sunday, will be hoping to beat off competition from the likes of Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia to hold down a regular spot in Moyes' first team plans.
