Here is Nani after landing in Istanbul and announcing that he’s just signed for Fenerbahce
Ok that’s not strictly true but to be sold for £4.3m while only in the second year of a five year contract just goes to show how low Nani’s stock has fallen over the last couple of seasons. You’ll probably never see a more frustrating footballer. You can have all the talent in the world but it won’t make any difference if you’re constantly choosing the wrong option.
He may have a considerable medal haul after his spell at Old Trafford but I think that’s more to do with the talent that was around him than Nani actually leading the team to silverware and success. For someone who was on £115k a week in his latest contract his career has certainly peaked as he’ll spend the next few years in the Turkish Super Lig, but for someone who was always compared to Cristiano Ronaldo as a barometer of quality it seems as if they two players talents and careers are getting further and further apart.
