Wigan’s Antonio Valencia and Wilson Palacios have been linked with Manchester United several times over the summer and while the transfer window is closed we’re still hearing of United’s supposed interested in the players.
Yesterday there were rumours that Manchester United were preparing an 18m bid for the players, today we have Dave Whelan telling the Wigan Observer that Manchester United have been watching Valencia for a while.
From what I’ve seen of the two players they won’t be walking into the starting XI by any means and would fight for a place on the bench. Perhaps Ferguson sees Valencia as one for the future?
What do you guys think – are Valencia and Palacios United material?
