Manchester United transfer news: West Ham interested in signing Antonio Valencia next summer – reports

West Ham are lining up a shock move for Manchester United star Antonio Valencia next summer, according to reports.

The 33-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season and he has recently fallen out of Jose Mourinho’s favour.

Valencia could be a free agent in the summer

As of January, he will be free to talk to potential suitors around Europe, with several clubs in Italy and Spain showing interest.

However, the Hammers have emerged as one of the favourites to sign the Ecuador international as they search for a new right-back.

The right-back has fallen out of favour at United

According to The Sun, West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini is a huge fan of Valencia and Pablo Zabaleta could retire at the end of the season.

An Old Trafford source said: “The club are still deciding what to do with Antonio and his future.

Pellegrini is reportedly interested in Valencia

“He has played a few times this season, but has struggled with injuries and his form hasn’t been great.

“Him and Jose haven’t seen eye-to-eye at times this season and it might be the end for him here, but we will see.”

Valencia has made almost 250 appearances for the Red Devils and spent nine years at the club.

He was forced to apologise earlier this season after liking an Instagram post calling for Mourinho to be sacked.
