Manchester United

Valencia waiting on new deal

12th February 2019, 10:58 by Neil Foster

Manchester United's Antonio Valencia is still waiting to learn if he will be offered a new 12-month deal to stay at Old Trafford.

The Ecuadorian has been at the Theatre of Dreams for a decade and is out of contract in June, with his camp now able to talk to interested clubs.

However, unlike many of his United team-mates whose future is still up in the air, Valencia already appears to have one foot out of the door.

United have just announced a raft of contract renewals which include Anthony Martial, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones - all perceived to have various future sell-on value, with the club's money men wanting to protect themselves.

The Red Devils, though, are conscious Valencia has increasingly suffered with injuries during the past 18 months and is still a big earner on a reputed £120,000-per-week.

United also signed young right-back Diogo Dalot last summer from Porto and want to push the Portuguese prospect even more next season.

Valencia, who was signed from Wigan Athletic for £17m in 2009, has made just nine appearances this term and has featured just once under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
