Antonio Valencia has intimated he wants to stay at Manchester United for a while longer
Having initially started off his Manchester United career as a winger, Valencia has been moved to right-back.
The 31-year-old has impressed Jose Mourinho and a clause in his contract was triggered last month that will see him stay until at least 2018.
Although his natural attacking instincts are undoubted, the Ecuadorian has hinted he wants to stay at Old Trafford for as long as possible.

“It's quite tough because you need to focus even more because you're playing closer to your own goal. One misplaced pass can result in you conceding a goal.
“I feel I've improved in that area but when I'm on the attack it's like I'm in my position. But I am in the team and feel like I have the manager's backing and his trust.
“I have a new contract and I love the club, the city and my family like living here in Manchester. I would like to stay here as long as I can, five even six years, more maybe!”
