Man United chiefs make ultimate decision on Antonio Valencia future

Manchester United chiefs have decided not to extend Antonio Valencia’s stay at Old Trafford.

United will not trigger the 12-month extension in Valencia’s contract and could walk out of Old Trafford for free when his deal expires at the end of the season.

The Ecuador international made one Premier League start in the past five months and has eight appearances in all competitions this summer.

Earlier today, Solskjaer, who handed the 33-year-old one appearance since he was appointed by Ed Woodward as the caretaker in December, claims he doesn’t know if Man United will offer the right-back a new deal.

“He’s still not 100 per cent fit,” Solskjaer said of Valencia. “He is still working to get back fit and he’s had a fantastic career here at Man United and in England, he is one of the Premier League winners left in the dressing room.

“But, at the moment, I’m not sure if Man United and Antonio will agree on the next year, so it depends if he gets back on the pitch as well in the next few months.

According to MEN, Antonio Valencia, who has spent 10 years at Old Trafford, will leave Manchester United for free at the end of this summer.
