Antonia Valencia`s agent, Diego Herrera, has confirmed that Wigan Athletic have received a bid for the Ecuador international from Real Madrid.

Herrera also says that there are other clubs interested in his player but that nothing official a part from the Madrid bid has been forthcoming, he also says that it is unlikely that Valencia will stay at the Latics and he will be moving this summer.

Diego Herrera told reporters:

‘Wigan revealed last week that there has been an offer from Real Madrid but they haven’t told me any details about it. I don’t know how much the offer is and I haven’t yet talked to anyone from Madrid about details of a contract, so I don’t know how long they would want him for. Wigan have not confirmed anything to me about Manchester United’s interest.

‘I know there are other clubs interested but as far as I know there’s nothing official. I have yet to sit down with Antonio and see what he wants.

‘We’ve not yet talked about which club he would prefer. Honestly I think it’s really difficult that he remains at Wigan. I would anticipate that he leaves this summer. We have to see what will happen in the next few weeks. We’re not in any rush.’
