Orlando City have confirmed the signing of Luis Nani.

The MLS side have officially stated that they have reached an agreement with Sporting Lisbon over the signing of the Portuguese winger on a free transfer. He has signed a three-year contract and will join the club as a Designated player.

City SC EVP of Soccer Operations Luiz Muzzi said Nani was a dynamic player on who can deliver crosses and impact games from the offensive flanks and who will bring a significant amount of experience to the team.

Nani’s career started at Sporting in 2005, and two years later he moved to Manchester United. There, he won four Premier League titles and the 2008 Champions League. In 2014, he was loaned back to Sporting for a season, before joining Turkish side Fenerbahce on a three-year deal. However, he was sold to Valencia after only 12 months, and loaned out to Lazio the following year. He started this season with Sporting again, and he leaves now having scored eight goals in 24 games for his boyhood club.

He also won the 2016 European Championship with Portugal.
