Manchester United might have Cristiano Ronaldo running rampant on the wing, but that won’t stop them from looking for another option to help the club out after January. The have a young Premier League star in mind!
Manchester United are keeping a keen eye on Wigan winger Antonio Valencia, according to Latics chairman Dave Whelan.
“We’ve got some fantastic young players here and we’re going to get some clubs chasing them,” Whelan told The Wigan Observer. “That’s football. If you’re a professional footballer you want to win things, I understand that. We will keep them as long as we can.
“We have a good team and a great spirit. Steve Bruce has instilled belief. The goal from Valencia against Man City was stunning, I know Man United have been watching him.” (Daily Mail)
Valencia has been a breakout star for Wigan this year. His pace on the wing has been superb to this point, and from the looks of things, it has really allowed the Latics to have width on the pitch.
