Valencia's mooted move from Man Utd to Juventus unlikely says agent

Antonio Valencia will not be departing Manchester United for Juventus in January says his agent.

The Ecuadorian winger has managed just three Premier League starts so far this season and there have been rumours that Juve are looking to make a bid in the winter but his representative, Diego Herrera Larrea, has made it clear he will most likely not be leaving Old Trafford.

"I am aware of rumours of Juventus' interest, but for my part there is nothing concrete," Larrea told calciomercato.com.

"In the past, some Italian clubs were interested in the player but not in recent times.

"I don't think that Juve has spoken with Manchester United because I was not informed, but I cannot exclude it as a possibility.

"I see it as very difficult that he leaves United, first of all because he has recently signed a new four-year deal and because he and his family are very well in Manchester.

"But in football, never say never."
