And Valencia, 34, was offered to Boca and River by his agent, with both clubs turning down the opportunity.

Beyond the financial factors, River have the highly-rated Gonzalo Montiel at right-back.

Valencia departed Man United a year ago following a decade at the Premier League club.

After returning to his homeland, Valencia made 28 appearances for Quito.
