Speaking to AMK Sport in Turkey, Fenerbahce president Aziz Yildirim said that Spanish side Valencia will trigger Nani’s $9.5 million buyout clause, with the move expected to be completed after the European Championship.

The 29-year-old winger has scored twice in four EURO matches for Portugal this summer, one of the nation’s better players as they head into the quarterfinals.

Nani made a name for himself at Manchester United, where he made more than 200 appearances for the Red Devils over eight seasons at Old Trafford. He won four Premier League trophies and a Champions League title during his time in Manchester.

However, Nani wasn’t in Louis Van Gaal‘s plans when the Dutchman took charge, loaned out to Sporting for a season before joining Fenerbahce on a permanent deal last summer.

In his first year in Turkey, Nani tallied 12 goals and 13 assists in all competitions.
