This transfer may have nothing in common with a certain report where Kylian Mbappé had shone with the famous “you don’t talk to me about age« , it is this passage that comes to mind when you see Nani officially commit to Venice until June 2023. The reason: at 35, a legendary player from the Portuguese selection, rather destined to take advantage of the beautiful Orlando sun than shine on the green rectangle given the age of the machine, is embarking on a new challenge. That of keeping Venezia in the transalpine elite.

When the promoted Italian introduces his new recruit, it takes several paragraphs to recount the boy’s entire experience. Euro 2016 with Portugal, four English Championship titles in 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2013, a Champions League in 2008, the Italian Super Cup in 2017, 88 appearances in MLS, an experience in Turkey… what shudder the supporters of the city of love. Free of any contract since this winter with the American franchise, Nani will surely bring his experience to a very young group rather than finding the net every weekend.
The surprise would be daunting if grandfather managed to walk on water.
