For a transfer fee which is believed to be in the region of £7.2 million, the Spanish outfit Valencia secured the services of former Manchester United player Luis Nani as he penned a 3 year-long contract.
“Valencia has reached an agreement with Portugal international Luis Carlos Almeida da Cunha ‘Nani’ that ties the player to our club for the next three seasons. Nani, has played for Sporting CP (2005-2007, 2014-15), Manchester United (2007-2014) and Fenerbahce (2015-16).” This was the statement released by Valencia as the Spanish club confirmed the signing of Luis Nani.
Luis Nani is the 6th Portuguese player that has joined Valencia from the past 5 seasons as the club has already signed: Joao Pereira, Ruben Vezo, Joao CanceloAndre Gomes and HelderPostiga are all of the previous Portuguese performers that have joined Valencia in the previous 5 years before Luis Nani’s recent arrival to the Mestalla Stadium.
The head chiefs of Valencia are hoping that Luis Nani can help push the Spanish club into a higher position of La Liga. They are currently located at the 15th spot of the top tier football league in Spain with 10 points secured from their 11 league matches that they have played so far.
Throughout the 11 year-long senior career of Luis Nani, he has been able to secure top European titles including: Premier League, UEFA Champions League FA Community Shield and the FIFA Club World Cup, just to name a few of the more renowned pieces of silverware that Nani has lifted.
The majority of these titles were snatched during his time spent performing in Old Trafford as a player of Manchester United and the supporters of Valencia are hoping that he can do the same with the Spanish outfit but taking into consideration how much his career has dipped, it might be difficult to accomplish.
