One of the best stars set to leave Manchester United on a free transfer after Jose Mourinho spat


Antonio Valencia is close to leaving Manchester United on a free transfer, reports claim.

The full-back has a clause in his contract that allows him to sign a pre-contract agreement elswhere at the start of March, should they not activate an extra year option.

United chiefs have to make the decision by March 1 or the 33-year-old right-back is free to negotiate his exit, according to The Sun.

Mourinho accused him of being overweight, while he dropped the club captain after he ‘liked’ a post on Instagram calling for the former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager to be sacked.


While he is happy to stay at United despite these issues, they have caused him to question his future at Old Trafford.

There is plenty of interest in the former Wigan Athletic star, with teams in Germany and Turkey keen on landing him.
