‘I want to win more trophies’: Nani signs new Manchester United deal to give Moyes much-needed boost

By Mancunian Matters staff

Manchester United winger Nani has signed a new five-year deal that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2018.

The Portuguese star had been linked with a move away from the Premier League champions with Monaco and Juventus reportedly keen.

But, despite being restricted to a bit-part role for the Reds last season, the 26-year-old says he is looking forward to helping David Moyes’ side compete for honours this term.

He said: “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.”

After an injury-disrupted pre-season, the winger returned to the side for United’s 1-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.

Moyes, who endured a difficult first transfer window in charge at Old Trafford, 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 is expected to play for Portugal against Northern Ireland in Belfast in a World Cup qualifier tonight.
