Manchester United Confirm They’ve Extended Another Key Player’s Contract

Manchester United are, for the most part, a team brimming with youthful exuberance. However, many of the squad’s more experienced players have proven vital this term.

Michael Carrick’s stability has allowed Paul Pogba to shine, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been phenomenal (at times) and Antonio Valencia has been arguably their most consistent performer.

The club are set to extend the Swede’s contract, Jose Mourinho revealed before Christmas and today it’s the turn of Valencia with the club announcing they have triggered a clause in the former Wigan man’s contract, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2018.

The Ecuadorian has been at the club since arriving at the club in 2009 from the Latics. He operated on the wing in his early years at the club and was even handed the coveted the number seven by Sir Alex Ferguson, only to produce his worst season at the club while donning it.

He’s been forced to adapt his game to a full-back role in recent years and, under Mourinho in particular, has been excellent.
