MANCHESTER UNITED captain Antonio Valencia is set to leave Old Trafford in the summer, according to reports.
The Ecuadorian’s contract expires in six months and, with the Red Devils reluctant to offer the full-back a new deal, his representatives are said to be “in negotiations” with Inter Milan.
But the club has not shown any intention to make an offer to either Valencia or Phil Jones.
And Mirror reports that the 33-year-old defender is already considering his options with his representative already “in negotiations” with Inter, who are interested in landing the versatile player for free in the summer.

Valencia joined United in 2009 from Wigan and has played 338 games for the Red Devils during his 10-year career at Old Trafford.
Initially playing as a winger, he has been converted into a first-choice right-back by Sir Alex Ferguson, and given the captain armband by Jose Mourinho at the beginning of the current season.
But following a fallout with the Portuguese manager, and with the emergence of Diogo Dalot, he lost his place in the squad.
After Mourinho’s sacking, United caretaker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer started Valencia against Newcastle in his first Premier League appearance since September.
Following his £145million switch from Liverpool, the Brazil international has failed to live up to expectations and the Red Devils are reportedly interested in offering him an escape route.
