Fans hail Valencia move

United fans around the world rushed to our message board after reading the breaking news about Antonio Valencia's arrival on Here are some extracts...

I'm not going to judge him before he plays for us, but from what I saw of him at Wigan he looked a very exciting player and will surely get even better in a United shirt.
- Jason Freeman

I'm delighted we've signed a proper winger. I'm all for this guy, I think he will be very successful.
- Shropshire born and red

I'm really happy with this signing. I was impressed with him when I saw him last season, especially in the two games against United and I think he's going to do very well for us. He's quick, can beat a man and delivers a good cross. He's also prepared to put in a shift defensively - what more do you want from a winger?
- Gavinio

This lad has all the qualities to make him a world beater. Whenever United have lost big players in the past, the gaffer has been great at bringing in youngsters to replace them and Valencia will prove another masterstroke. He's a traditional winger who will terrorise defences next season. He is not shy in putting a shift in at the back either. Thanks Fergie, we never doubted you.
- Mark Gallagher

I'm glad we have signed someone who knows the Premier League. He has given us plenty of nightmares in the past - surely he can only get better with the players he will have around him at Old Trafford.
- Stephen Morritt

I think this is a really good signing. I have never heard a bad thing about his character or his dedication. I think it will be great for our strikers - Valencia can provide good balls into the area with his creativity and he is strong on the ball.
- ManUnited Til Death Do I
