United Complete Valencia Transfer

Antonio Valencia is Manchester United's first summer signing: the winger has signed a four-year contract at Old Trafford after United agreed an undisclosed fee - thought to be around Ł16million - with Wigan Athletic.

"Joining Manchester United is a dream come true for me,' he told the official website.

'I have enjoyed my time at Wigan, but I am thrilled to have the chance to challenge for the biggest honours in club football here.

"Playing in front of 76,000 fans alongside players like Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and Ryan Giggs will be an amazing experience. I can`t wait to get started."


Sir Alex Ferguson: "Antonio is a player we have admired for some time now, having spent the last two years in the Premier League with Wigan. I am sure his pace and ability will make a significant contribution to the team."

So be it. Welcome to Manchester United, Antonio!

Seven goals in 89 games? I won't say anything...

Again.... to all you knobheads, he's not a direct Ronaldo replacement! There is NO Ronaldo replacement out there! We lost a winger in Ronaldo and we're replacing him with another winger. Nothing more! Besides what was Ronaldo's scoring like at Sporting? He came to a great club and he became a top scorer. I'm not saying Valencia will be the next Ronaldo but there is no reason why he can't contribute his fair share of goals.

"Besides what was Ronaldo's scoring like at Sporting?" Better than Valencia's at Wigan, knobhead.

Wigan is not a club where wingers or midfielders can deliever lots of goals.. Their main goalscorer had only 8 goals and the second - only 3.. Aamir, what about 35 mln pound Xabi Alonso who provided helluva goals(19 in 199 mathes in top-club, interesting)..

But Xabi's job is not to score goals, it's to provide goals. It's like criticising Wayne Rooney for not saving any penalties last season! Valencia's job is to provide goals as well as chip in with a fair amount.

Aamir, yes, Valencia isn't bought to provide lots of goals - his main task will be to deliver ball to Rooney, Berbatov and Benzema(i hope).. He is not ronaldo, he is only another talented winger(not World's best player)..

he will give is natural width, anyone that cant see that he is a great singing then they are fools. and if anyone thinks we will try to replace ronaldo with a goalscoring winger is also a fool as that is impossible. with Valencia i think we can play a proper 4-4-2 now, we dont need to sacrifice rooney. ronaldo leaing will make us a better force as a team as we wont have gaps which ronaldo left when we didnt have the ball

but we do need to sign a striker now, benzema would be ideal. tall, strong, fast and can head the ball and has an INCREDIBLE potential
