Nani was sparingly used by David Moyes this season featuring in only 12 appearances for United and with Conte desperate to mount a Champions League challenge next season after securing the Serie A title for three years in a row.

The duo had earlier lifted the Champions League for United in 2008 in Moscow beating rivals Chelsea in the penalty shootout in an eventful night in Russia. the timing of the deal looks to be exciting as the Red Devils might wait until the end of the World Cup in Brazil to see if Nani’s performances in Brazil increases his value in the inflated transfer market.
