Nani leaves Manchester United

The Portugal international has finally called time to his uninspiring career at Old Trafford by sealing a 6.6 million euros move to Turkish giants Fenerbahce

Despite impressing on a season long loan spell at childhood club Sporting CP, Nani was unable to convince Louis van Gaal of his importance for the Red Devils in the coming years and has hence been allowed to join the Turkish side who have given him a long term contract with a lucrative deal attached to it.

The winger joined United back in 2007 but despite showing a lot of promise initially, never really developed or grew at the club and often cut a frustrating figure for the club’s fans. And now, United have chosen to cut their losses short and send the player packing to a league where he is being given a chance to resurrect a career that has been severely affected in recent years.

Fenerbahce said a three-year contract had been agreed with a transfer fee of six million euros ($6.6 million/£4.25 million).

“Agreement has been reached with the player himself and the club,” Fenerbahce said in a statement.
