Manchester United defender Antonio Valencia is ready to leave the club when the January transfer window reopens after he was ostracised from the team by the Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho in recent weeks.

The Ecuador international player was the Red Devils skipper before he became an outcast at Old Trafford.

Valencia is believed to have told friends that he will secure a transfer away from the club if he cannot win his place back in the Manchester United team.

His problems with Mourinho started when he liked an Instagram post that called for the dismissal of the Portuguese tactician earlier in the season.

The 33-year-old didn’t feature for Manchester United since the incident happened until this week.

Valencia was part of the Manchester United B team that lost 2-1 to Spanish La Liga side Valencia at the Mestalla on Wednesday night in the Champions League.

It was their final Group H game in this season’s competition.

Antonio Valencia has already been linked with a January move to fellow Premier League club West Ham United.

Former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is the present West Ham manager.

The Chilean tactician wants to improve his defence with the acquisition of Valencia.

The Ecuadorian is the longest serving member of the Manchester United first team.

He joined the club from Wigan Athletic in 2009.
