United ace desperate to play in Brazil

As reports suggest Juventus are considering a bid for Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia, the 25-year-old has revealed his ambitions for the long-term future.

A move to Turin holds no appeal for the Ecuador international, who is instead is focused in pro-longing his career in Manchester, and securing a spot at the 2014 World Cup with his country.

"To play many more years in Manchester, winning many trophies with the team," he told when asked about his ambitions.

"And, on the global front, [playing in] the World Cup in Brazil."

The priority for Valencia, however, is regaining his fitness after sustaining an ankle injury during the Copa America.

The winger limped out of Ecuador's opening game of the tournament and was advised to return to Carrington to be assessed after he and his compatriots were eliminated in the group stage.


Valencia missed six months of the last campaign following the serious injury he sustained during a Champions League encounter with Rangers at Old Trafford in September.

He did, however, make a significant impact upon his eventual return, playing an integral rile as United secured a record 19th league crown.

And Valencia will now have an even greater incentive to recover in time for the new campaign, with new United acquisition Ashley Young set to contest the midfielder for a starting berth at Old Trafford.
