Manchester United's former midfielder Luis Nani waves to fans after the signing ceremony of his new contract with Turkish football club Fenerbahce at the Sukru Saracoglu stadium in Istanbul on July 6, 2015

The former Manchester United winger began his career at Sporting, leaving in 2007 only to return on loan from United in 2014.

The 31-year-old arrives from Valencia having been loaned to Lazio last season, Sporting announced in a statement.

Nani, his country’s third most-capped player, missed out on the World Cup where Portugal lost to Uruguay in the last 16.
