He told United's official website: "My time at Manchester United has been like a dream come true. To be the first Ecuadorian player to win the English Premier League was a very proud moment for me and for my country.

"I am so happy to have signed a new deal, and am looking forward to working with Louis van Gaal. There is great team spirit within the club, and we are all determined to get back to winning ways."

Valencia, who has scored 21 goals in 191 games for United, will have been at the club for eight years if he sees out his new contract.

Assistant manager Ryan Giggs said: "I'm really pleased Antonio has signed a new contract. His contribution to the team since he joined the club in 2009 has been fantastic. "Antonio is a very powerful player with great speed and versatility. He is very professional in his approach to training, and I am delighted he has committed his future to the club."
