This transfer brings the 29-year-old to one of the elite leagues in European football.
Playing for Valencia in La Liga gives Nani a chance to prove his worth and shine at one of the continent’s biggest clubs.
The player is making a return to Valencia after spending a year in Turkey. He left Manchester United full-time in 2015 following a loan spell at first club Sporting Lisbon in 2014-15.

The Portuguese star began his career at Sporting Club before a 2007 move to Old Trafford with the promise of a huge potential to be fulfilled. Then he won the Premier League title four times with Manchester United, as well as the Champions League and Club World Cup in 2008.
But his contributions wasn’t enough to stop former manager Louis van Gaal from moving him out on loan back to Sporting for a season in 2014.
Nani has so far passed 100 caps for his country and is currently representing Portugal at Euro 2016.
Portugal will play against Wales in the European Championships semi-final leg scheduled July 7.
