Manchester United outcast Nani arrives to finalise Fenerbahce move

Manchester United winger Nani has arrived in Istanbul to finalise a transfer to Fenerbahce.

As was announced by the Turkish club on Thursday, the Portugal international is set to undergo a medical as negotiations between the two teams over a transfer fee continue.

Nani touched down in a private jet on Sunday evening, with tests expected to begin on Monday morning.

"I'm very happy for being here," the attacker told Fenerbahce TV. "I think that there is a big chance for proving myself again.

"I'll try to do my best for make Fenerbahce fans happy. I hope everything goes well.

"I know Fenerbahce very well. The club's aims always been high.

"Also, playing with [compatriots] Raul Meireles and Bruno Alves will be exciting. With their help, I'll feel like I'm with my family. I want to be successful with my new team-mates."

The 28-year-old had a solid season on loan with his old club, Sporting, last year, scoring 12 goals in 35 appearances, but failed to convince Louis van Gaal to keep him on at Old Trafford.

Nani initially joined United in 2007 and made over 200 appearances for the Premier League giants.

Team-mate Robin van Persie has also been linked with an imminent move to Fenerbahce but his agent, Kees Vos, denied on Sunday that a deal had been agreed. //
