Manchester United squad enjoy a walk at the start of their pre-season tour of the United States at LAX Airport on July 18, 2014 in Los Angeles, California.
Manchester United is delighted to announce that Nani has signed a new five year contract to June 2018.
The Portuguese winger signed for United in May 2007 and has won four Barclays Premier League titles, two League Cups, a FIFA Club World Cup and the UEFA Champions League in his six seasons at Old Trafford.
David Moyes 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 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.”
United squad secrets
Manchester United’s squad is a rich mix of nationalities and personalities but what do the players really think of each other?
Just for fun, we picked three Reds at random to talk on camera about their team-mates and tell us:
- Who has the worst taste in music?
- Who is the comedian in the dressing room?
- Which player is most likely to become a manager?
Watch our Red Devils video to see how Nani, Phil Jones and Ashley Young answered these and other questions.
