Ex-Man Utd star Nani shows off incredible body transformation

Ex-Man Utd star Nani shows off incredible body transformation

Now playing in the MLS with Orlando, Portuguese winger Nani has shown that he has far from let himself go since his Manchester United days.

Former Manchester United player Luis Nani has posted a gym photo to his Instagram account showing off his incredible new bodybuilder’s physique.

Since leaving Old Trafford in 2015, Nani has had stints at Fenerbache, Valencia, Lazio and Sporting Lisbon. And in February, the Portuguese winger made the move across the Atlantic to play for MLS side Orlando City.

And since his move, the 32-year-old has developed a Florida beach body that would put former Manchester United and Portugal team mate Cristiano Ronaldo to shame.

“Trying my body building moves. Monday motivation,” posted the Orlando player, who won the European Championships in 2016 with Portugal, as well as the Premier League and Champions League with United during his career in Europe. 

Nani Instagram body a hit with fellow footballers

The photo has garnered much attention on Instagram, including from some fellow footballers. “Looking buff brother,” wrote goalkeeper and former Portugal team mate Bruno Alves.

“Let’s go Nanaka,” commented former United team mate Fede Macheda, while West Ham’s Brazilian winger, Felipe Anderson, posted a 'fire' emoji.

Since joining Orlando in February, Nani has impressed in the MLS, scoring eight goals in 14 games.

Although if things do eventually go belly up for his football career, the Portuguese winger could make the easy transition into professional bodybuilding, judging from the way things are goings (or should we say, the way muscles are growing).
