Ecuadorian outlet El Universo has quotes from the father of Antonio Valencia which indicate the possibility of a move to Major League Soccer for the Manchester United man.

Valencia, 33, has made 338 appearances for the Red Devils since arriving from Wigan Athletic, but just five this Premier League season. He also 94 caps for the Ecuador national team.

The report also notes interest from West Ham United and the Chinese Super League, but says an MLS team has made him a two-year offer. He was recently rumored to have drawn the interest of Arsenal.

You’d have to think it’s a Designated Player deal, and that it’s a team who will use him at his former position of right wing (or at least as a right mid).

For what it’s worth, Valencia already has his own page on MLSSoccer.com. Spoiler alert: It’s not worth much, because the MLS page also has pages for Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and all-time XI defender Fabricio Coloccini.
