Manchester United Captain Antonio Valencia looks set to leave the Theatre of Dreams after close to ten years with the English giants.
The 33-year-old Ecuadorian joined the red side of Manchester in 2009 after an impressive three seasons at fellow English club Wigan Athletic.
Initially, Valencia was brought in as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo following his big money move to Real Madrid but he was slowly converted into a fullback.
While speaking to the press, Caretaker Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær all but confirmed Valencia’s future at the club after he expressed his uncertainty on whether the South American would activate his one year contract extension.
