VALENCIA IS UNITED TARGET
Fergie wants first option on Wigan winger


INTEREST - Antonio Valencia
By DAVID HARRISON, 17/01/2009

MANCHESTER UNITED have Wigan winger Antonio Valencia in their sights.

Old Trafford boss Sir Alex Ferguson has asked Latics manager Steve Bruce to be given first option on the Ecuadorian international.


But any move would have to wait until the end of the season when the United manager will be given his transfer funds for the summer.


United's arch-rivals Real Madrid have also been linked with a £15million bid for 23- year-old Valencia.


However, Bruce would prefer to hold on to the winger for the rest of the season.


After agreeing to sell Wilson Palacios to Tottenham for £13m, the Wigan boss is reluctant to weaken his squad further.


Fergie had also been eyeing Palacios but would not have been able to fund a January bid for the 24- year-old Honduran midfielder.

I wouldn't mind Valencia here at all.

He's a good player, but has the potential to become great. But again, like Valencia if he signs, then good. If not, then I won't be too bothered.

IF it happens, could the be the end of Nani?

Although having read in one of the threads that Ribery could be on the market at the end of the season... **** Valencia! haha

Am I the only one who actually doesnt think valencia is that good? is it because being at wigan he's not under a spotlight or what?

(apart from WAZZA1989)

I think he's just been hyped up as a player whos better than he really is just because we showed a sniff of interest

His a good player in my opinion and should move to a bigger club either in the EPL or overseas in the summer but we kind ended our pursuit for a winger as we signed Tosic so no matter how good a winger is and is linked with Man Utd we will not buy - unless an unusual circumstance arrives. I think we were interested in him and could of bought him in the summer but I think Fergie wanted David Silva as an official bid was rejected since the player did not want to leave the La Liga but nevermind since we got Tosic.
