Reports are suggesting that Rafa Benitez and Sir Alex Ferguson are both considering a bid for £10m rated Wigan winger Luis Antonio Valencia.
Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce has claimed that he may have to sell Manchester United and Liverpool target Luis Antonio Valencia. (various)
“Valencia is a dying breed,” said Bruce. “He’s direct, quick and goes past players. He has an exceptional future. I don’t want to lose players like that, but I’m a realist. If big clubs are going to come and wave their chequebooks, then it’ll be difficult to stand in the boy’s way.”
I like the 22 year old Ecuadorian and think he is a useful player but I don’t feel he would be anything other than a squad player for either United or Liverpool. The valuation also seems slightly off. Do fans of either team feel he would add anything worthwhile to their side?
