Antonio Valencia’s time at Manchester United should be coming to an end. A good servant to the club, given the years he’s spent wearing the red shirt, but the Ecuadorian’s best days as a football are long gone.
Since United have yet to trigger the one-year extension in his current deal, it may be time to suggest Valencia’s days at Old Trafford are numbered, and he can begin talks with clubs regarding a free transfer, according to The Mirror.
It may even be the case that United could start offering the full-back to clubs around Europe, with Inter Milan rumoured to be interested, as per Calciomercato, who translate a piece from Mundo Deportivo stating the Serie A giants are looking to replace Sime Vrsaljko.
But what’s a transfer saga without a twist?
Our friends at Sport Witness have translated a piece from Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport which claims the 33-year-old has been offered to Inter, but they’re not interested because the defender isn’t a ‘hot name’, suggesting they will pass on any proposal and look elsewhere.
It comes as no surprise that Inter aren’t interested in signing Valencia. He has had a horrific season thus far and looks to have lost his legs due to being unable to get up and down the right flank like he did in years gone by…
This may turn into a short waiting game to see if anyone fancies taking Valencia off United’s hands…
