New West Ham United manager Mauricio Pellegrini is eyeing a free transfer move for Manchester United skipper Antonio Valencia at the end of the season.

Valencia, 33, has rarely featured for the Red Devils this season due to two major reasons.

The Ecuador international star has battled with injuries and also fallen out of favour with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

Antonio Valencia and Mourinho have developed a frosty relationship in the last few weeks according to the Daily Express.

He has not played for Manchester United since he liked an Instagram post calling for Mourinho to be sacked.

Antonio Valencia has made over 200 appearances for the Old Trafford outfit since he signed from English Championship side Wigan Athletic.

West Ham United boss Manuel Pellegrini is said to be a big fan of the right-back and would like to secure a free transfer move for him next summer.

Valencia has just six months on his current contract with the Red Devils and it’s uncertain whether Manchester United will offer him a contract extension that will see him stay beyond this campaign.

Senior Manchester United officials are yet to make a decision on whether or not to offer him a new contract.
