"He’s still not 100% fit, still working to get back fit and he’s had a fantastic career here at Manchester United and England," Solskjaer told a press conference on Friday.

"He is one of the Premier League winners left in the dressing room but I’m not sure if Manchester United and Antonio will agree on the next year so it depends if he gets back on the pitch in the next few months but he’s the captain, great servant to the club so hopefully I can get him on the pitch and show what he can do."

Valencia who made 338 appearances for United during his spell has won two Premier League, the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and the Europa League.
