Wigan Athletic wide-man Antonio Valencia is attracting the interest of the worlds two biggest clubs, Real Madrid and now Manchester United have joined the chase to sign Ecuador`s finest

Latics have turned down bids from Madrid but United fancy their chances of landing one of the Premier Leagues most exciting prospects and hope that the speedy 22 year old will join them at the end of this season.

Leaving in summer rather than now would be music to Latics` boss Steve Bruces ears, he has stated that he isn`t a fan of the January transfer window and he claims that it favours the big clubs and sides like Wigan struggle to recruit quality replacements if they lose their stars.

Valencia will command a mega transfer fee, close to £20 million; this should provide Steve Bruce with a handsome transfer kitty in the summer.
