Luis Nani was back to Sporting Lisbon for the 3rd time post signing a contract for 2 years with his ex club for a fee that was not disclosed. The 31 year old winger from Portugal comes from Valencia, the Spanish side after he spent his last season in Italy on loan with Lazio. There he managed with just 18 appearances in the Serie A. Nani has been an incredible player and he spent his previous times with Sporting Lisbon between 2005 and 2007 and again in 2014. He played 113 times and scored 23 goals brilliantly for the club.
Manchester United should try buying a player from Benfica during each transfer window due to the scouting of their club especially in recent seasons. Scouts were on transfer planning prior to the joining of Jose Mourinho in Lisbon. However, this has been on the rising trend, especially after the arrival of the Portuguese coach at Old Trafford. It is not only the first team of Benfica that Manchester United is eyeing on as they have a close watch on B side too. During the month of March, United had a keen interest to take Joao Felix, the 18 year old attacker.
The club has had many players in the past which includes Andrija Zivkovic and Ruben Dias from Benfica. However, they were not as strong. The 21 year old Dias and 22 year old Zivkovic are capable of playing on either wing which includes the right wing position. The best performer on Saturday was undoubtedly Luis Nani.
