Nani signs new four-year contract at Manchester United

Nani has scored four goals so far for United this season

Manchester United winger Nani has signed a new four-year contract with the Premier League champions.

The 23-year-old Portugal international, who joined the club from Sporting Lisbon in the summer of 2007, had two years left on his previous deal.

But United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes Nani is starting to fulfil his potential and rewarded him accordingly.

Ferguson told United's website: "He is an emerging talent and has developed tremendously since joining the club."

Nani, who has made 97 appearances and scored 12 goals for United, added: "I am delighted to have signed a new contract. It has been like a dream come true to play for Manchester United.


"The coaching staff have taught me so much about the game and I'm playing alongside some of the best players in the world. I'm looking forward to winning many more trophies with this team."
