There is more good news for Manchester United fans inside the Football Transfer Tavern, as sources at The Sport Review have revealed Antonio Valenica is not seeking a move away from the club in the summer.
There has been speculation stating the winger may be looking to quit Old Trafford after failing to earn a regular first team place this season, although Valencia has now looked to put an end to that, saying he hopes to stay at the newly crowned champions for a very long time.
“Neither the club or the coach have said anything about that [leaving Manchester United], I think it was a rumour that came about in Ecuador more than anywhere else,” he told Radio La Deportiva.
“This (Manchester) is my home, I would like to stay here for a lot longer and retire here before going back to Ecuador.”
The Ecuador international captain also revealed it has taken him a considerable amount of time to recover from the broken leg he suffered playing for the Red Devils in a Champions League game against Rangers in 2010.
“When I had the problem with my leg I recovered mentally without any difficulty,” he added.
“But the problem with my back was something that affected me for a lot longer, but now I am fine and physically much better.”
He also reserved special praise for his manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who has guided United to their 20th title.
“I am very happy, this is my second championship here,” he said.
“I have the confidence that the coach has given me and when you go into a match with the confidence of the team, it gives you extra motivation.”
