Nani targets immediate debut against Man Utd

Nani relishes the prospect of a Manchester United reunion after joining A-League side Melbourne Victory.

The 35-year-old former Portugal star has moved to Australia on a two-year contract, with his Victory deal announced on Tuesday.

Nani left United eight years ago and has since had spells at Sporting CP, Fenerbahce, Valencia, Lazio, Orlando City and Venezia.

He could line up against United on Friday, however, with his new team facing the Premier League giants in a friendly at the MCG.

Nani won the 2007-08 Champions League and four Premier League titles with United.

He was asked about his prospects of playing in that game.

Nani said:

“I would like to. And I don’t know. I just arrived in the country, and it’s a long flight, so there are lots of things to do.

“The body must be ready to compete. I think the fans and everyone expects me to be able to perform with all my qualities, so playing that game could be not a good idea, but as a player, I always want to play, so give me five minutes, and I will be ready.”

Nani won 112 caps for Portugal, scoring 24 goals for his country.

As his international career was winding down, Bruno Fernandes emerged as a candidate to come into the Portugal side and stamp his mark.

The pair were teammates at Sporting for a short time and could now go head-to-head.

Nani said he had yet to speak to Fernandes about his Melbourne move.

“Not yet. We had to be quiet about this transfer,” Nani said. “I know there will be time for us to meet here and talk about everything.”

Nani was impressed with Melbourne boss Tony Popovic’s plans.

He persuaded him to try his luck in Australia for the first time.

He said:

“I had some clubs interested in me, but Melbourne Victory is a club that has been trying to contact me for a long time.

“I had the opportunity to talk with the coach and had great feelings, which was one of the good reasons to make me come here.”
