Nani has been at Manchester United for the five years, but the Portuguese winger still splits opinion in the Premier League.

Signed from Sporting Lisbon in 2007 for a fee in the region of £20 million, Nani is often compared to Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo due to his nationality, club and position, which is somewhat unfair considering that Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world.

Nani has improved during his time at Old Trafford as he matures as a player, but while he has played over 200 times for Man Utd, we do not see his trademark back flip celebration as often as we might.

Despite being a key player for Portugal, Nani finds himself battling for a first team spot for the Red Devils and will need to show that he trickery can be matched with a consistent end product.
