Manchester United managerial Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that defender Antonio Valencia will leave the club at the end of the season.

Solskjaer confirmed the imminent departure of Valencia during his pre-match press conference on Friday morning as he said that it would be highly unlikely that Manchester United will retain his services beyond this summer.

Antonio Valencia has few months left on his current deal at Old Trafford and the club has until the end of today (5 pm GMT) to activate the extra year clause in his contract.

The 33-year-old is the Manchester United captain having been appointed into the role last summer but he has been on the outskirts of the first team this season.

The Ecuadorian international star has struggled for form and fitness this season.

He has played just five Premier League games for the Red Devils since the start of the season with his last appearance coming in the 2-0 win at Newcastle United two months back.

Antonio Valencia has spent a decade at Manchester United since he joined the club from Wigan Athletic in the summer of 2009.

He has won two Premier League titles, 2016 FA Cup title, 2017 Carabao Cup title and the 2017 Europa League title at Manchester United.
