FORMER MANCHESTER UNITED star Nani has joined Serie A side Venezia on an 18-month deal.

He played 230 times for United between 2007 and 2015.
And despite his 41 goals and 73 assists in that time, the ‘best winger of a generation’ tag might be a little over the top.
Venezia are 17th in Serie A and just a point outside the relegation zone.
And a club statement read: “Nani joins Venezia FC.
“One of the most talented wingers of his generation.
“He has honors including a European Championship, a Champions League, four Premier League titles, and three Portuguese Cups.
