Former Man Utd Star joins Orlando City.


Orlando City has announced the signing of Portuguese Star Nani who joins from Sporting CP after signing a three-year designated player contract.

The MLS club announced no transfer fee between Sporting CP and Orlando City but details could be revealed in the coming days.

“This is an exciting day for our organization,” Orlando City SC EVP of Soccer Operations Luiz Muzzi said in a statement.

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 Leaguecrown 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.
