Manchester United winger Nani has admitted he feels 'more relaxed' on the back of signing a new five-year deal with the Premier League champions.

Nani's future was up in the air over the summer as he was repeatedly linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

However the Portuguese international signed a new long-term contract shortly after the summer transfer window slammed shut to end any speculation over his long-term future.

The 26-year-old, speaking exclusively to Manchester United's official website, said of his relief at signing a new deal: "I’m more relaxed as now I can focus just on the games and what I am going to do on the pitch.

"That is very important for a player to have all the things outside of the pitch sorted out. Now I have a new contract with Manchester United and I’m so happy.

"I hope to give back on the pitch to try and win more trophies with the club."

Nani has been limited to a 27-minute cameo against Liverpool so far this season - mainly due to a groin injury he picked up during Manchester United's pre-season match against AIK Fotboll.

The former Sporting Lisbon star is close to full fitness, but will miss tomorrow's Champions League match against Bayer Leverkusen due to the controversial red card he picked up against Real Madrid last season.
