Man Utd star could return earlier than expected

Valencia sustained a horror ankle injury against Rangers in September and was ruled out for the season.

But reports now claim Valencia could be set to return three months earlier than expected.

A source confirmed to the Sunday Mail: “Valencia’s attitude has really impressed everyone.

“He could have gone home but he has put his recovery and the club before anything else.

“He is working extremely hard and believes he could be playing again as soon as mid-February.”
