Manchester United captain Antonio Valencia is set to leave at the end of the season when his contract expires. Under Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, José Mourinho and now Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Ecuador global has been an excellent servant to the club, but his time with the club appears to have run its course.
In recent years, the Ecuador global has been converted into a right-back, capable of getting forward and supplementing the United attack.
The Red Devils do have until March to make Valencia an offer, but it's looking unlikely at this current stage.
It would never have been fair to say that Jose Mourinho was the only problem at Manchester United, heck he probably wasn't even the biggest issue for the team, but, as is always the case, changing the manager was the easiest problem to rectify.
Inter have also been linked with Ashley Young as they look to strengthen in wide areas, but the Mirror are reporting that Valencia's advisers have already started negotiating with Inter Milan after they were informed that United have no plans of exercising the option to extend his contract by a year.
Inter would reportedly like to sign the right winger turned defender in the January transfer window but United don't want to weaken their options and have no thoughts of signing a replacement in this window.
Looks likely Valencia will leave.
It's been almost a decade of Valencia being a mainstay at Old Trafford but it looks like the end for him.
