Valencia and Darmian are both expected to leave Old Trafford this term having fallen out of favour, featuring in just five Premier League games each thus far this term.
The Red Devils opted against extending the deal of the Ecuadorian, and he is set to leave for free at the end of the season.
Valencia arrived Old Trafford in the summer of 2009 from Wigan Athletic and has gone on to make 240 league appearances for them.
The 33-year-old has won two EPL titles, an FA Cup and the Europa League with United.
Darmian has failed to break into United’s starting XI since arriving from Torino in July 2015, featuring in 59 league games till date, and is also expected to move on when his deal expires at the end of campaign.
