Valencia is ready to leave United in January
Manchester United captain Antonio Valencia is open to leaving the club in January, not waiting for the end of the season.
Valencia and the Red Devils’ head coach, Jose Mourinho, are in conflict from the goalless Champions League match against Valencia in October (0:0), when Antonio, supposedly by chance, liked on Instagram a post with a call to dismiss the Portuguese.
Valencia apologized to Mourinho then, both publicly and at United training base personally, but lost the trust of his manager. The 33-year-old Ecuadorian practically hasn’t played in the last two months, thus the media supposes that he has no future at Old Trafford.
According to the Daily Mail, Valencia’s agent specially arrived in Manchester this week to discuss the future relationships with United and Antonio himself.
If United aren’t going to offer Valencia a new contract, then it may be better for the parties to stop cooperating in January. There is a serious interest in Antonio from West Ham and the Spanish clubs.
