Nani: I visited Man Utd as fan two years before signing

Manchester United winger Nani has revealed how he visited Old Trafford two years before signing with the Premiership giants.

The 23-year-old told Inside United of his trip to M16 as a youngster and looks back on how far he has come since.

"I came with my friend and we did the tour of the museum and the stadium," said Nani. "I remember sitting in the first-team dressing room and both of us saying 'wow, this is Ronaldo's place' and 'this is where Rooney and Giggs sit'!

"We sat there and said 'imagine what it would be like to be part of this dressing room one day,'…and then two years later I was here. It was a great feeling when I signed."
