Luís Carlos Almeida da Cunha, commonly known as Nani, is a Portuguese international footballer of Cape Verdean origin who plays for Sporting CP having played for 8 years for Manchester United.

Like a lot of Man United players he has a high peak in Master League which makes Man United a strong team. Nani is dubbed the next Cristiano Ronaldo by some and coincidentally both players started their PES careers at Sporting CP.

Many say he is overrated as it is only his first season at Manchester United and he is already better than most Premier League wingers on the game, so therefore means that he would be a good player to buy and therefore be recommended.

His speed and agility mean that Nani is a nigh on impossible player to track and so gets into a lot of good positions on the wing. Once developed he is also able to put in a good cross. At his peak, Nani has a high shot power which allows him to score some fantastic long range goals and also develops into one of the fastest players on the game.

A very good winger with great dribbling ability and speed. Thus put together making him one of the best wingers in the game. Since Cristiano Ronaldo has moved on to Real Madrid he should feature more regularly for your team. He also has decent technique, jump and shot power making him more of a threat. One attribute he does lack is teamwork, where you will see him dribble to ball rather than pass.

He has the card Trickster which makes him very effective while using step overs. He is also able to perform the Marseille Roulette and Quick Scissors Dribble.

Due to the summer signing of Ashley Young, it may be harder for Nani to break into your team. He still is a player with high potential in Master League. One of his main talents is his pacey dribbling, however this is a characteristics that he shares with Young, along with his accurate crossing. It may be beneficial to play both Ashley Young and Nani however this may require the omission of Antonio Valencia who is another very good winger for United.

He has the card Trickster along with a few skill cards such as Roulette Skills and Scissors Skills.

[edit] PES 2013

With Manchester United signing Shinji Kagawa it may be harder for Nani to break into the team. Still possessing his fast speed, he's one of the more pacey wingers in the side. One of his underlying weaknesses is that his accuracy with either shooting or passing is generally quite poor. One benefit he has over the likes of Antonio Valencia is that he is pretty solid with his left-foot and therefore will have no issues using it. He has amazing dribbling speed and accuracy on the ball, he's the fastest Manchester United player and when utilised on the right wing correctly, he becomes very deadly and can annoy any defence from any team, even the best ones because of his high speed turns past them and also being able to get a good shot in, he is considered far better than Young & Valencia.

His overall is 90, and while he is still young, being 25 years old, he will once again be a highly recommended player with a high peak.

He has the playstyle card Trickster, as like in the past years of the game, but he has more skill cards. These are Outside Curve, Speed Merchant, Roulette Skills, Turning Skills, Scissors Skills and Flicking Skills'.
