Wigan chairman Whelan to meet with Man Utd, Real over Valencia transfer

Wigan chairman Dave Whelan will meet with officials from both Manchester United and Real Madrid to discuss the potential transfer of Antonio Valencia.

He will also meet with a third unnamed club who are striving for the Ecuadorian winger's services.

"United have got a meeting with us in the next three or four days, Real Madrid have got a meeting with us in the next three or four days, and the other team have asked for a meeting," he said.

"All season Real have followed him big style, Manchester United followed him big style and there is another club who have just come in from Europe, who we were unaware of," he continued.

"I swore I wouldn't reveal the identity of the other team because they are frightened of Real or United finding out."
