The Portugal international signed a new five-year contract at Old Trafford last week.
Manchester United winger Nani has revealed that new boss David Moyes persuaded him to commit his long-term future to the club.
The 26-year-old, a £17 million signing from Sporting Lisbon in 2007, was linked with a summer move away from Old Trafford , while there was speculation that he was prepared see out the season with United and allow the final year of his contract to run down before leaving on a free transfer.
But the Portugal international has since clarified his intentions by putting pen-to-paper on a new five-year deal with the Premier League champions and admits a chat with Moyes convinced him to remain at the club.
“I am very content with my new deal at Manchester United,” He is quoted as saying to the Daily Mirror. “This summer was not easy but after a lot of thought and talking to David Moyes I believe it was the best solution.
“I feel I can offer many things to United. I had other important offers but without a sufficent challenge to make me want to leave United.
“The coach would not guarantee me a place in the XI more than any other player. I know I must work hard to get into this team.
“That is my objective for this season.”
Nani played just 10 times during Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season in charge but it seems that Moyes has assured him of more first-team opportunities this term.
