Antonio Valencia 'resigned to leaving Manchester United'

Manchester United skipper Antonio Valencia is reportedly "resigned" to leaving the club in the near future.

Manchester United defender Antonio Valencia is said to have resigned himself to leaving the club in the near future.

The 33-year-old has been at Old Trafford for almost 10 years but is out of contract at the end of the current campaign.

United have the option to trigger a one-year extension, although that is due to expire in March and the club are rumoured to have indicated that he could depart this month on a free transfer.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Valencia "concedes he is struggling to meet the demands of a United full-back" but "is keen to prolong his career elsewhere".

The Ecuadorian has struggled with knee problems over the last two years and has made just one top-flight start for United in the last four months.

Relegation-threatened duo Newcastle United and Fulham are among the sides thought to be interested in a move for Valencia should he be permitted to leave United.
