Nani, 26, has scored 40 goals in 217 games  since joining the Premier League champions from Sporting Lisbon in 2007.
During his six-year stay, he has won eight trophies, including four Premier League titles and the Champions League.
He said: "Playing at United has been a fantastic experience for me. When I came to the club, I never imagined the success we have enjoyed."
There had been speculation about the Portugal international's future,after he made only seven Premier League starts last season.
Despite missing most of United's pre-season schedule with a nose problem,  Nani has impressed new Manchester United manager David Moyes enough to be given an extension to his contract, which was due to expire next summer.
"I'm really pleased Nani has re-signed for the next five years," Moyes said. "He has great ability and experience beyond his 26 years.
"I've been impressed with his approach to training and look forward to working with him in the coming seasons."
