Orlando City has announced the signing of former Manchester United star Nani, who joins from Sporting CP in Portugal.
Nani has signed a three-year designated player contract with the Lions, according to the MLS club, which also announced there was no transfer fee to complete the deal with Sporting.
“This is an exciting day for our organization,” Orlando City SC EVP of Soccer Operations Luiz Muzzi said in a statement. “Nani brings tremendous experience to our roster. He’s a dynamic winger with quality abilities to move and cross the ball, impact games and lead the offensive play.”
Orlando City will mark the sixth senior side the 32-year-old Portugal international will play for in his career.
Nani began his senior career at Sporting, where he featured for three years before a big move to Manchester United.
There he would go onto the play for parts of eight seasons, many of them alongside his Portugal team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, and win four Premier League titles, two League Cups as well as the 2007-08 Champions League crown under Sir Alex Ferguson.
Nani would return to his old club Sporting for the 2014-15 season on loan and then completed a permanent Old Trafford exit the following campaign when he headed to Turkish club Fenerbahce.
