Victor Valdes has had a dreadful time at Manchester United since joining on a free last January. He didn’t play until the end of last season when David de Gea picked up an injury and was expected to become the number one this season when De Gea left for Real Madrid.
However, before it was confirmed that De Gea was staying at the club, Valdes and Louis van Gaal fell out, meaning Sergio Romero was used in the opening fixtures of this season when De Gea’s future was still up in the air, with Valdes being left out of the squad.
Valdes’ agent, Gines Carvajal, has told Catalan newspaper Sport that the 33-year-old is keen to remain in England, but he is also open to playing in other countries.
We are relying on Manchester United letting Victor go. The Premier League is very attractive and Valdes want to stay because he has adapted perfectly to England, but we are not closing the door to any options. There are still two months until the transfer window opens and there is nothing concrete, but the intention is to leave Manchester United.
Liverpool have been linked with a move for the goalkeeper in January.
