Manchester United, Antonio Valencia, feeds the United D.C.

UPDATE Tuesday 9 April, 11:15 ET: Antonio Valencia added further speculation to the reports linking the Manchester United captain with a passage to the D.C. United.

After breaking the initial reports, Valencia retweeted a fan hoping the news was true.


Tues. April 2, 2.15pm ET: After a decade of service at the club, the captain of Manchester United and Ecuador, Antonio Valencia, looks set to leave the Red Devils at the end of the current season, and Major League Soccer could be his next destination.

This is what his father, Luis, recently reported to the Ecuadorian Radio Area Deportiva outlet, revealing that the 33-year-old has a two-year contract offer on the table from an unnamed MLS. Valencia is also said to have West Ham, Inter Milan and a Chinese club as suitors if and when it moves into the transfer window this summer.

A winger before his career in the United States, Valencia has spent more time in the past in recent seasons. Strong, fast and lasting, he gained almost 100 appearances in the national team, including numerous appearances at the 2006 and 2014 World Cup.

His most recent international action gave him a taste of MLS, as he played for La Tri during their US tour in last month's international window, a 1-0 defeat by the United States at the Orlando City Stadium and a goalless tie against Honduras at the Red Bull Arena.
