Portuguese is adamant a return home is out of the question.
Unsettled Manchester United midfield player Luis Nani says that he is too good to return to Portugal this summer, reports the Daily Mirror.
The mercurial Portugal international has been at Old Trafford for the past six seasons now, having originally signed for the Red Devils from Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon for 25.5 million euros on a five-year deal in June 2007.
However, it is fair to say that in the intervening six-year period the 26-year-old has endured an up-and-down career in the north west, starring on some occasions, while also spending other parts of his time warming the substitutes’ bench.
And the last campaign proved to be particularly hard for the Portuguese, with Nani appearing in just the 17 matches in all competitions for the club, scoring only three goals in the process, including a paltry two strikes in his ten Premier League outings as United won a record-breaking 20th top-flight title.
But the winger is insistent that he will not return to his homeland this summer, with the likes of Arsenal, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain all reportedly said to be keen on landing the player this summer.
“I have everything in my hands. I am not saying that I will not continue at Manchester United,” said Nani.
“I will think about what is best for me. I have respect for the Portuguese clubs – especially Sporting Lisbon, but also Benfica and Porto – but I don’t think that is viable.
“I think my level at the moment is different.”
