Portuguese winger Nani has joined Turkish side Fenerbahce from Manchester United for a reported fee of £3.5 million.

A slightly terrified-looking Nani was greeted in Turkey by huge crowds after completing his move to last year's Super Lig runners-up.

After eventually making his way through the airport, the winger was greeted by more euphoric supporters on the streets of Istanbul.

Others chose to focus on the player's habit of straying from the outrageously good to the infuriatingly awful within a matter of seconds.

Compatriot Cristiano Ronaldo is another who could admit to being frustrated by his former Manchester United team-mate.
