Former Manchester United star Nani has re-joined Sporting Lisbon on a permanent basis more than a decade after originally departing for Manchester United.

“I had many offers, but I perfected Sporting! What matters is what I feel & what I want & I’m extremely happy with the decision I made,” He said.

Valencia reportedly allowed the Euro 2016 winner to leave on a free in order to reunite with the club that gave him his professional debut in 2005.

Nani previously returned for a loan spell during the 2014-15 season, netting 11 goals in 36 competitive appearances.

The 31-year-old has failed to settle since leaving United with no more than one season spent at any of Fenerbahce, Valencia and Lazio, where he played on loan last term.

Likewise, Sporting have struggled for stability in recent times, seeing a host of first-team players head for the exit following a training ground attack from fans at the end of last season.

Last month, the Club’s management sacked Sinisa Mihajlovic after nine days in charge, installing former coach Jose Peseiro as his successor.
