Portuguese winger Nani is convinced he can become one of the best players in the world.

The Manchester United winger’s impressive form this season has seen him become a crucial part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s squad.

“I want to be one of the best players,” Nani said. “In the future, I want everyone to be saying Nani is one of the best players in the world. That is my ambition.”

The 23-year-old’s place in the right side of United’s midfield has been strengthened by the absence of Antonio Valencia, who suffered a long-term ankle injury at the beginning of the season.

Nani, who moved to Old Trafford from Sporting Lisbon for €25.5million in 2007, has benefited from the departures of Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez and has become one of the Premier League’s most eye-catching performers this season.

“Since I came to Manchester I always said I believed in my qualities and my capabilities,” said Nani. “Eventually I got my opportunities.

“I always knew I could play well and be an important member of the team. I enjoy the pressure of being an important member of the side.

He added: “When you have the ambition to be a top player you have to like the pressure as well.”
