Nani says he is feeling “more relaxed” after signing his new five-year contract at Manchester United.

The Portugal international’s future was a source of speculation over the summer after he was limited to just 17 appearances in all competitions last term.

But the 26-year-old penned a new deal with the defending Premier League champions to keep him at the club until June 2018.

And the winger is now looking forward to focusing on performing on the pitch.

“I’m more relaxed as now I can focus just on the games and what I am going to do on the pitch,” Nani told United’s website.

“That is very important for a player to have all the things outside of the pitch sorted out.

“Now I have a new contract with Manchester United and I’m so happy. I hope to give back on the pitch to try and win more trophies with the club.”

Nani went on to say that he feels at “home” at Old Trafford.

“I felt home a long time ago,” he continued. “I think I’m part of this club as I’ve been here for a lot of successful seasons.

“Virtually all of my career, I’ve been here – I just had two years at Sporting Lisbon and all the rest was here. All my successful times have been at this club so that’s why I am so happy. I feel at home.”
