Newly promoted Premier League club Sheffield United have reportedly made an offer to sign former Manchester United defender Antonio Valencia.

According to the Daily Mail, Sheffield United are among the clubs that have made an offer to sign the 33-year-old on a free transfer.

Antonio Valencia is a free agent after his Manchester United contract expired earlier this summer.

The Ecuadorian international player said his goodbyes at the Theatre of Dreams after a decade as the Manchester United player.

Antonio Valencia became a Manchester United player in the summer of 2009 as a replacement for Portuguese international superstar Cristiano Ronaldo who left the club for Spanish giants Real Madrid while Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge of the first team.

He signed for Manchester United from former FA Cup champions Wigan Athletic.

Antonio Valencia was the Manchester United skipper before he left the club this summer having evolved at the club from a right winger to a right-back.

He was the first choice right-sided defender at Manchester United over the past few seasons until the just concluded campaign which was dogged by fitness issues.

Manchester United featured Ashley Young and Diogo Dalot prominently at right-back during the latest Premier League campaign due to the fitness problems faced by Antonio Valencia.
