Antonio Valencia is now in discussions to join Inter Milan at the end of the season, according to The Mirror.

The Red Devils skipper fell out with sacked Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho earlier in the season.

As well as a new manager it's pretty likely that the playing staff will change.

Inter would like to sign the 33-year-old now but United are reluctant to weaken Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side. The new man in charge will have players in mind to sign more more importantly might be the players who leave.

Inter Milan are reportedly the only party that have assessed his situation and are in touch with his advisers, who know that the United may not end up offering contract extension to the Ecuadorian.

Valencia joined United from Wigan Athletic in 2009 as one of three players who came in that summer to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.

Valencia has less than six months remaining on his Manchester United contract, and is free to talk to clubs outside of the Premier League, and while United have an option to extend it by a further 12 months, they have no intention to do so according to the Sunday Mirror.

As for where the captain's armband goes in the event of Valencia's departure, the most likely scenario is that Ashley Young is made club captain but Paul Pogba wears it most weeks, with Young not necessarily an automatic starter.

The report has claimed that Inter would like to land Valencia during the January transfer window, but United want to keep him until the end of the season due to their busy fixture list.
