Valencia have confirmed the signing of former Manchester United winger Luis Nani from Fenerbahce for £7.2million.

The Portugal international has signed for the La Liga side on a three-year deal just a year after leaving Old Trafford.

Nani had been linked with both Liverpool and Everton in the last month with Turkish publication Fanatik claiming that the Merseyside pair had bee urged to move quickly before his €8.5million release clause expired on July 1.

“Valencia have reached an agreement with Portugal international Luis Carlos Almeida da Cunha ‘Nani’ that ties the player to our club for the next three seasons,” read a statement from Valencia.

“Nani, 29, has played for Sporting CP (2005-2007, 2014-15), Manchester United (2007-2014) and Fenerbahce (2015-16).

“His impressive record includes winning the Champions League and four Premier League titles with Manchester United and two Portuguese Cups with Sporting. In his last season with Fenerbahce, Nani played 46 official matches, in which he scored 12 goals.

“The Portuguese international is currently in France, where his national side will take part in the semi-finals of Euro 2016, and will be presented to our fans in the near future. Nani has played 101 official matches with Portugal and has scored 20 goals, including two at Euro 2016.”
