During his successful seven years at Old Trafford, Nani won four Premier League titles, the League Cup, the Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup.

A statement from Valencia read: "Valencia Club de Futbol have reached an agreement with Portuguese international Luis Carlos Almeida - 'Nani' - for the player to join the club for the next three seasons.

"He is currently in France with the Portuguese national team, who will play in the Euro 2016 semi-finals against Wales this Wednesday.

"He has represented his country on 101 occasions, scoring 20 goals - two of which have come in the ongoing tournament.

The deal is reported to be in the region of 8.5 million euros ($9.4m).
