Latics and United Disagree in Valencia Valuation

Latics and United Disagree in Valencia Valuation


It appears that Wigan Athletic and Manchester United cannot agree a fee for Ecuador international and Latics wide right midfield man Antonio Valencia.

According to a report in todays Sunday People, United have tabled an offer of just £12 million which is way short of Latics valuation of £18 million and if they think they were about to get him on the cheap then Latics owner Dave Whelan has put paid to that.

Speaking to reporters Whelan says that United are 'stealing` Valencia if they think they can get him for just £12 million and that he is the best wide right player in the world at the moment, big statement perhaps but Valencia is a talent and he would surely flourish on the big stage and when you consider the price of players like David Bentley and Michael Carrick then you`d have to agree that Antonio is indeed worth what Whelan is asking.

Whelan told the People:'I think Antonio is the best wide right player anywhere and that includes Franck Ribery. If this lad goes to Man United he will be a sensation there.

'Within a few months and over the course of a season the United supporters would come to worship this lad.

'We see him week-in weekout in games and in training and he's a world class player.

'He doesn't play the same way as Ronaldo. There is no show or flash, but he's a world class player and he'll take some replacing. No-one tackles him or takes the ball off him because they can't get near him.

'At the kind of money that's been talked about for Antonio he'd be an absolute steal. United appear to be getting £80m for Ronaldo and they would be paying out a fraction of that for Valencia so it would be great business because this boy has got immense ability.'


If they wont pay it Dave tell them to go else where

I think you're crazy to even think of selling him. He is good enough to walk into almost any Top 6 squad. Why would you want to sell him? Surely you want more players of that quality rather than less.
