The attack-minded Portuguese ace has spent the most of the last month kicking his heels on the sidelines after injuring his ankle against Wolfsburg.
Nani made a telling contribution in United's 4-0 romp over Hull City on Saturday and he feels the recent injury is now firmly behind him.
It had been speculated the former Sporting talent could move on in January, however, he is determined to bring success to Old Trafford.
"It was very frustrating to be out injured, but it happens in football. I'm back now and I feel very good," he told MUTV.
"I was happy with my performance [against Hull] and I just want to keep improving every week so I can help the team be successful.
"Everyone is very happy. It's great to be top of the table and it's given everyone a lot of confidence. We're playing well, scoring goals and feeling good."
Meanwhile, United take on neighbours City in the second leg of their Carling Cup semi-final on Wednesday - a game that has both sets of fans licking their lips with anticipation.
Roberto Mancini's charges hold the upper hand following a 2-1 win at the City of Manchester Stadium and Nani knows it will be a hard game for Sir Alex Ferguson's troops.
However, Nani believes in Wayne Rooney they have a striker at the top of his game following his four-goal haul at the weekend, an edge that gives them an excellent chance to turn around the tie.
"The game against City will be very hard, but it's great that we have someone like Wayne who is in good form and feeling confident," he continued.
"It's great to see one of your strikers score four goals and it gives everyone confidence because we know we have someone who can score goals in every match.
"I'm sure it'll be a fantastic atmosphere against City and I'd love to be involved. Hopefully we can get the win."
