Antonio Valencia has hinted he’s off to Major League Soccer.

Arsenal had reportedly shown interest in the versatile star in January. However, no deal materialised for the 33 year-old.

Valencia current deal at Old Trafford expires at the end of the season and United have not taken their option for extending it for a further 12 months, which means he is set to leave on a free transfer this summer.

In March, Valencia’s father Luis revealed that as many as four clubs, including Arsenal, had shown an interest in signing his son.

The Gunners are keen to find someone to provide defensive cover following another shaky season at the back, but Valencia has hinted that his future could be alongside former United teammate Wayne Rooney in MLS.

As reported by the Metro: On Tuesday, Valencia retweeted and liked a post from a supporter who had quote-tweeted a report from Ecuador which read: ‘Based on a special request from one of them, the Manchester United goalscoring duo will become a reality again in the capital of the United States. Two-year contract about to be finalised with D.C. United.’

Valencia has spent a decade at Old Trafford after a successful spell at Wigan Athletic.

In that time the Ecuadorian has lifted two Premier League titles – both under Sir Alex Ferguson.
