On his day, he is the most glorious sight to behold. He is full of tricks and speed, a magician with the balance of a gymnast. A player who can destroy an opponent with a change of running direction, in the blink of an eye.
The problem is though, Luis Nani knows very little about the word "consistency."
However, even with all the honours, after all these years it feels like we have not seen anything resembling his best.
In 2011 it seemed Nani was ready to take on the world. His form was electric as he was voted United's "Player of the Year" by his fellow professionals, but in March that year it all started to wrong after one reckless tackle by Jamie Carragher.
After that subsequent injury Nani could not hit the heights again, and United fans have been waiting ever since. There is no doubting the depth of the player's quality. You do not win in excess of 70 caps for a nation such as Portugal if you are not good.
This cannot be described as "progression."
Since Moyes' arrival there has been an improvement in both Nani, and his wing partner Antonio Valancia. In Sir Alex's later days both players were clearly bereft of confidence, and this translated into their form.
There is a touch of swagger in Nani's game again, but the question is simple: "Is it all too little, too late?"
Moyes needs to find a way to make Nani central to his plans, and a move away from 4-4-2 would help the player. I do not believe there is a problem in the main with Nani's work rate, but the defensive side of the game stifles his creativity.
A move to 4-2-3-1 would aid Nani greatly. The extra freedom to come inside from the left, on to his favoured right foot, would allow him to play the sort of offensive football he enjoys. He does not enjoy tracking back in a 4-4-2, and it shows in the quality of his work.
But it all depends on how Moyes wants to develop his squad in the coming year.
Will Manchester United ever see the best of Nani?
Nani is in the "last chance saloon" to cement his legacy as a United player. If Moyes can finally find the key to unlock all that talent he is bursting with, his later years in a red shirt might be more celebrated than his earlier ones.
