‘Good Servant For The Club’ ‘Past His Sell By Date’ – Social Media Reacts To Claims That United Captain Could Make Italy Move

Inter Milan are weighing up a January move for Manchester United captain Antonio Valencia, according to reports in Italy.

The Ecuadorian international’s current deal expires in the summer and the Red Devils do have the option to extend his contract for another year.

However, Valencia has seen his playing time reduced this season, and the club may be open to letting the 33-year-old leave.

Fans on Twitter had a mixed reaction to the story with some saying they would be sorry to see a great servant of the club go, while others feel it is time for him to move on:

Valencia has been at the club nine and a half years, playing under five different managers during that time. After arriving as a right-winger, he has adapted his game to be a fullback in recent years.

He captained United in the Europa League final win against Ajax in 2017 and was made the official club captain after Michael Carrick’s retirement at the start of this season.
