Nani seems to have been on something of a quest to find himself the perfect pair of football boots.

Nani talks about his new football boots - the adidas Predator adiPower

Over the last 12 months, we’ve seen Nani try out the Superfly and the Mercurial Vapor, before ditching Nike altogether to wear the new adiZero.

But it seems the flying Manchester United winger isn’t just on a quest for the lightest football boots in the world, as he played out the last two games of the season in the new adidas adiPower Predator.

Now, after months of swapping, the Portuguese international seems like he’s struck up an immediate liking to his new adidas football boots;

“I wore the new adidas adiPower Predator for the first time at the weekend when we won the league so I’m hoping they act as a good luck charm in the UEFA Champions League final as well!”

Nani is delighted that United became the most successful side in English football by winning a record-breaking 19th top flight title and now all his attention is focused on how to triumph over the might of Barcelona in the Champions League final.

He continued: “It˘ been a great season. I am very happy at United to win the 19th title, that˘ three I have been part of and I want to keep going and contribute even more.

“Now we are thinking about the Champions League final. I don˘€žË˜t want the same thing to happen as in 2009 when we lost to Barcelona.

“I˘€žË˜m not thinking about Lionel Messi; I don˘€žË˜t think there is anything specific to worry about with Barcelona. But we will try our best.”

The one person who is on Nani’s mind is Sir Alex Ferguson, who many speculate will retire if he claims a third UEFA Champions League title the coming weekend, though Nani suggests that isn’t going to be the case.

“He is still doing his job very well. At this moment he feels very confident and fit,” added the 24-year-old. “He believes that he can go to the training ground and give everything ˘ and as long as he does that, he will stay. He loves football and winning trophies. And that˘ what he˘ doing now.”

“He has been very important for me,” Nani said “Everybody knows, since I have arrived at United, the opportunities he has given me. He is the most important person in my career.

“If I am doing well at the moment it is because of him and the opportunities he had given me. And if I am showing a better side to my game it is because he has shown me how to improve and what I have to do.

Do you think Nani will shine in the new adidas adiPower Predator against Barcelona?

Or will his new football boots good luck wear out against Messi & Co.?

    anybody else notice Nani always wears his socks backwards as if to not show the Nike “Swoosh” at all. I found it interesting as he wasn’t wearing them like that in the beginning of the season.

    What do you mean backwards? Theres only one way you can put on a sock. Plus if he was wearing something to block the Nike tick it’s really pointless as it’s on the shorts and shirt!. I always saw nani in Superflys :-/ disappointed he’s changed. Although I’m a superfly wearer and I would buy the new preds.

      Nani wears his socks like Ronaldo does, he cuts off the bottom of the sock and then wears another sock that finds more comfortable. If you notice the second picture the nike swoosh is on the back when it is supposed to be on the front.
