Valencia Signs New Deal

Currently on World Cup duty with Ecuador, and fresh from a spat with England`s Raheem Sterling that saw him red-carded, it appears that Antonio Valencia is in the news for the right reasons this morning.

It is being reported that the wide-player has agreed a new four year deal that will see him remain at Old Trafford and in doing so has, so it is being said, picked up a pay increase of some 70,000 a week.

Valencia had only a year left on his original contract so United have moved quickly to stop other clubs anticipating getting Valencia on the cheap.

great news...yet again another under performing united player gets a huge pay rise to ward of interest from other clubs (barnsley i assume).......we are without doubt the worst run club in world football...we waste millions in wages on average squad players instead of buying real quality...and this has been going on since ronaldo left...what next welbeck and cleverly get a 100% pay rise for managing an assisst in 5 a side training??

Personally don't see the big deal in this, I for one am happy Valencia got a new deal. During his stay at United he's been one of our most reliable and consistent performers even in spite of two potentially career ending injuries.

70k a week isn't bad and probably reflects his role in the team and ability quite well. In comparison we've got Nani on 90k a week and Young on a 120k a week and neither put in the shift Valencia does, neither are as consistent, neither are happy with a reduced squad role and neither put the team first.

Granted last year was a bad year for him but who wasn't it a bad year for? I don't believe anyone should be sold on last years performances but rather on their performances since joining which means surely Young and Nani will get booted out on their arses so we can give the left flank a facelift and an injection of some quality.

Januzaj is probably going to be our first team choice next year and will be more involved so Valencia provides the competition needed, cover in case of injury, some decent quality in depth and another option, a more natural winger opposed to Januzajs more modern, inverted winger approach.

Strangle an England player get a pay rise wonder if that works for all types of employment? ;-) Can't say I'm surprised at Valencia getting a new contract if we're binning wingers Nani and Young would be prime candidates over Valencia. Only Januzaj could have been considered safe in his job prior to this
