Valencia signed, Ronaldo finally gone and still mixed rumours about Benzema
It didn’t take long to finalize the capture of the 23 year old Antonio Valencia. The Ecuadorian has signed at Old Trafford. No transfer fee has been disclosed, but Wigan is said to have captured £18m for the international who pledge his trade two years in the shadow of the Theatre of Dreams.
There is no doubt that Valencia will fit our game the only question is will he be a fixture in the starting 11 from Day 1. He is raving to play in the squad though:
