Solskjaer reveals Valencia will move on
Manchester United interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has announced that captain Antonio Valencia is set to leave the club this summer.
United have until 17:00 (GMT) on Friday to trigger a one-year contract extension with the right-back but they appear happy to move him on.
The 33-year-old has only featured in five games this season in the league with a lack of form and injuries derailing his progress.
Valencia is still on the sidelines and not expected to return until the end of March and he only has six months left on his current contract.
Solskjaer hopes the 33-year-old will prove his worth before the end of the campaign but he is expecting him to miss out on a new deal.
"He’s still not 100% fit, still working to get back fit and he’s had a fantastic career here at Manchester United and England," Solskjaer told a press conference on Friday.
"He is one of the Premier League winners left in the dressing room but I’m not sure if Manchester United and Antonio will agree on the next year so it depends if he gets back on the pitch in the next few months but he’s the captain, great servant to the club so hopefully I can get him on the pitch and show what he can do."
