Portugal winger Nani is set to join Valencia from Fenerbahce on a three-year deal, the LaLiga club have announced.

The 29-year-old left Manchester United for Turkey in the summer of 2015, having also spent a loan spell back at former club Sporting Lisbon.

During his time at Old Trafford, Nani was part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s successful side and won the Premier League four times as well as the 2008 Champions League final.

The deal taking Nani, who was also a reported target of Stoke this summer, to Spain is believed to be in the region of €8.5million.

A statement from Valencia read: “Valencia Club de Futbol have reached an agreement with Portuguese international Luis Carlos Almeida — ‘Nani’ — for the player to join the club for the next three seasons.

“He is currently in France with the Portuguese national team, who will play in the Euro 2016 semi-finals against Wales this Wednesday.

“He has represented his country on 101 occasions, scoring 20 goals — two of which have come in the ongoing tournament.

“Nani will be officially presented as a Valencia CF player in the coming days.”
