London, Apr 29(ANI): Portuguese winger Luis Nani has put a full stop to speculation regarding his future by insisting that Manchester United is his home and that he would like to extend his contract with the club.

Nani, who recently announced his engagement to model girlfriend Daniela Martins, claims he is happy with his life at Old Trafford and thought of leaving them never crossed his minds.

"I left Portugal for a great personal challenge and to improve as a player. There have been times when it's not been easy but they treat me well here and, step by step, I am fulfilling my dreams," The Sun quoted Nani, as saying.

" Manchester United is my home ," he added.

Nani will have two years left on his existing 80,000-a-week pound deal in the summer, but talks are already under way about improving that and tying him to the club until at least June 2016.

Italian giants AC Milan and Juventus have both expressed an interest in the player, who has hit 13 goals this season.

Nani said his agent was already in talks with United, and is hopeful a new deal would be reached by end of the season

He said: "The manager has immense faith in me and that's all that matters. My agent is negotiating with the club on a new deal and things are going very well. I hope at the end of the season an agreement will be reached." (ANI)
