Antonio Valencia to Madrid ?

Antonio Valencia's agent has confirmed Spanish giants Real Madrid have made an offer for the Wigan Athletic winger.
The Latics are resigned to losing the Ecuador international and should recoup a fee of around £21m for the midfielder, with Manchester United also believed to be battling it out for his services.

Wigan boss Steve Bruce has openly admitted the 23-year-old will move on in the summer and Madrid have been long-term admirers after attempting to lure him to the Bernabeu last January.
Herrera said with interest in his client from some of Europe's biggest clubs it was now difficult for him to stay at Wigan. "Wigan revealed last week that there has been an offer from Real Madrid but they haven't told me any details about it," Herrera told PA Sport.
