Antonio Valencia has successfully undergone foot surgery and the Ecuador international is expected to miss the up-to five months.
Valencia picked up an unspecified foot issue during the first half of last months’ Manchester derby but carried on playing until the 81st minute, a decision which is now believed to have exacerbated the problem. Specific details of the foot complaint – and procedure - are still unknown but the 30-year-old could be ruled out until at least April, 2016. Having already lost Luke Shaw – double leg fracture – Louis van Gaal may be forced into the transfer market during the January window with limited options at left-back. Summer acquisition Matteo Darmian will provide cover while Ashley Young is another option but with the United well placed in the Premier League and having already progressed to the next phase of the Champions League, the Dutchman may look for reinforcements.
