Nani will join Valencia

Valencia, Spain – Valencia has agreed to pay a transfer fee of 8.5 million Euros for Portuguese midfielder Nani who will join from Fenerbahce.

Aziz Yildirim, Fenerbahce president, confirm Monday night in a club dinner that the 29-year-old player would leave the club.

The Mestalla club has yet to confirm the transfer but all rumors confirm as inevitable. His agent Lucas Bascherini, confirmed last week that there had been an approach from the La Liga side.

However, in addition to the 8.5 million euros of the clause, the main impediment to bring the Portuguese international on to Valencia is the huge cost of its pay, at level of international star Alvaro Negredo, which the club wants to output as soon as possible.

Revenue has entered the club in form of sponsorship Air Nostrum.

Nani, who will turn 30 in November, arrived to the Turkish league last season from Manchester United, whom last season had loaned him to Portugal’s Sporting.

English club Everton and Italian giant Inter Milan were also interested in obtaining Nani’s services.

Nani scored 12 goals in 45 games for Fenerbahce last season. The 29-year-old has also scored twice for Portugal in the Euro 2016 tournament.
