And the Ecuador international has set his sights on becoming an important part of the Red Devils’ squad next season.

“I would like to have more minutes,” Valencia told the Sunday People.

“I would like to have a more important role here. In fact, I would have liked to have more importance inside the team.

“But I have not been given the chance. I hope next season will be better for me as well as for Manchester United.”

Valencia has scored two goals and made two assists in the Premier League this season.
