Manchester United reportedly risk losing Antonio Valencia for nothing due to a clause within the Ecuadorian full-back’s contract.
Valencia is currently into the ninth year of his Old Trafford stay and is tied down for a further eight months.
The Red Devils have the option of extending his contract by an extra year, however The Sun claims that they’re stall and should currently wave goodbye to the 33-year-old on a free.
Antonio Valencia will be free to negotiate a move away from Old Trafford on March 1 unless Manchester United commit to a new deal or exercise their option on his current contract.

If United fail to trigger the clause in Valencia’s existing deal by March one, the previous Wigan Athletic jock will begin discussing terms with different clubs.
Teams in Germany and Turkey are said to be monitoring the situation, able to create a move in early 2019 if it becomes clear that Valencia is not any longer needed at United.
