Manchester United skipper Antonio Valencia could leave the club next month after falling out of favour with manager Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils defender is said to have told friends that he might have to leave Old Trafford if he wants to get back to playing football regularly.

This is according to the report from popular English media portal The Times.

Ecuadorian international star Valencia was a regular fixture in the Manchester United team under Jose Mourinho until earlier this season when he liked an Instagram post calling for the Portuguese tactician to get out of the club.

He was frozen out of the team until he returned to the Manchester United starting XI this week in the Champions League.

Antonio Valencia played his first Manchester United game in over two months during the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Spanish La Liga side Valencia at the Mestalla in the Champions League.

He would be hoping to feature again for the Red Devils when they travel to Anfield to take on Premier League leaders Liverpool on Sunday evening in what’s a league clash.

West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini has been credited with an interest in the 33-year-old who’s the longest serving senior player at the club after joining from Wigan Athletic in 2009.
