Manchester United captain Antonio Valencia is expected to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the season, according to Daily Mail.

The Premier League giants have until March to extend the Ecuador international’s contract by a further 12 months but recent reports say they have no plans to do so.

Inter Milan are now leading the hunt to sign the former Wigan Athletic star in the summer.

Reports in the Mirror suggests Valencia’s representatives have already began negotiating with the San Siro outfit.

The Nerazurri would like to sign the 33-year-old this month but the Red Devils are reluctant to weaken Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Valencia fell out with former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho earlier in the season, after supposedly liking a social media post asking for the Portuguese to be sacked.

This has limited the right-back to just five Premier League appearances all season.

Caretaker manager Solskjaer has now restored him back to the team as the former Villarreal winger played his first league game against Newcastle since September.
