Nani & Anderson seal Man Utd move

New Manchester United signings Nani and Anderson have both put pen to paper on five-year deals.

Portugal winger Nani, 20, and Brazil midfielder Anderson, 19, cost a combined 30m when joining from Sporting Lisbon and Porto respectively.

The pair, along with fellow new signing Owen Hargreaves, will be officially unveiled to the media soon.

Meanwhile, Polish keeper Tomasz Kuszczak also made his season-long loan from West Brom into a permanent move.

606: DEBATE

United gained a work permit for Anderson, after their initial application was rejected as he had not played 75% of Brazil's internationals during the last two years.

United argued that Anderson, who made his Brazil debut in the Copa America defeat by Mexico last week, had been prevented by his age into filling that criteria.

They also argued that he will bring exceptional talent to the Premier League.

Nani had been linked to a move to Tottenham, but said he would only leave Sporting to join a club like United.

Kuszczak joined United on loan from West Brom last August, and as understudy to Old Trafford number Edwin van der Sar made six Premier League and five FA Cup starts last season.
