United star won’t rule out Serie A move


Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia has refused to rule out a transfer to Italy, according to his agent.


Valencia has not been able to force himself back into the Old Trafford starting line-up since a horrific ankle injury ruled him out for six months, say Talksport.


Sir Alex Ferguson has preferred a wide combination of Nani and new signing Ashley Young this season, limiting the Ecuadorian’s appearances.


The 26-year-old’s agent Diego Larrea Herrera has refused to rule out a Serie A switch, though he did insist there were no offers for the player.


“I am aware of these rumours, but for me there is nothing concrete,” he said.


“In the past, the Italian clubs were interested in the player - in football, never say never.”


Italian giants Juventus have been suggested as having an interest in Valencia since he lost his place to summer signing Ashley Young.


Ferguson signed Valencia from Wigan for a fee of £16million and he quickly embedded himself into the United first team, striking up a partnership with Wayne Rooney.


However, his fortunes changed in a Champions League tie against Rangers at Old Trafford, where a seemingly innocuous challenge resulted in him suffering a double fracture dislocation of his left ankle.
