Nani Officially in Italy, Set to Become New Lazio Signing


Lazio has completed a swoop of Nani from Valencia, posting the arrival of the Portuguese winger on their Twitter. Terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.

The Biancocelesti posted a video of the former Manchester United man holding up a scarf with the team colors along with another video of him doing his medical examination.

The 30-year-old Portuguese international seems like a sensible choice for Lazio as earlier in the week they let go of Keita Baldé, who transferred to Monaco.

Needing an attacking player the Serie A club looked to veteran forward to replace the young Keita, as he has shown that he can still play football at a high level despite his age.

After spending most of his career with Manchester United, Nani bounced around the Portuguese and Turkish leagues before signing a deal to join Valencia in 2016.

Los Che spent a reported £7.2 million for the winger’s signature and he managed to appear in 26 games while scoring five goals for the Spanish squad.

Nani will not be the only Portuguese player coming to Rome before the close of the transfer window, with the Italian team posting videos of the arrival of Pedro Neto and Bruno Jordão from SC Braga.
