Antonio Valencia is set for talks with Turkish giants Galatasaray, according to Fanatik

The Ecuadorian winger-cum-full back has endured a mixed campaign under Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford, albeit one hampered by injury.

He has increasingly found himself deployed as a full-back in recent times, and it appears that José Mourinho no longer sees any kind of role for the former Wigan man next season.

Mourinho has already begun to assess and develop his new squad, extending the contract of Michael Carrick by a further year, as well as signing Eric Bailly from Villarreal.

But there is no place for Valencia in his plans, The Sun report, however he will have options, with Galatasaray set to renew their pursuit of the Colombian.

They previously made an approach last season, however they were rebuffed by United.

But it appears their pursuit of the 30 year old winger may prove to be more successful this time round.

Valencia has spent seven years at Manchester United, making over 240 appearances.
