Much to the surprise and delight of RoM, Nani was given a new five-year-deal last week, which shows David Moyes has more time for the Portuguese winger than our former manager did.

“I am very content with my new deal at Manchester United,” Nani said. “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 more than any other player. I know I must work hard to get into this team. That is my objective for this season.”

Moyes has also expressed his happiness over the new contract and has hailed Nani’s efforts in training.

“I’m really pleased Nani has re-signed for the next five years,” said Moyes. “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.”
