Man Utd price Liverpool out of Valencia battle

Manchester United have priced Liverpool out of the race for Wigan Athletic winger Luis Antonio Valencia.

The Mirror says Reds boss Rafa Benitez has made inquiries about Valencia and was ready to spend around £6million on the Ecuador star who can play on both flanks.

But apparent interest from Manchester United has pushed the fee towards £10m, well beyond Liverpool's budget. Negotiations are already under way to thrash out a deal.
