'Valdes will leave Manchester United in January'

The former Barcelona man has been left out in the cold at Old Trafford by Louis van Gaal, though his agent denied he would be returning to Spain despite a bid from Valencia


Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes will leave Old Trafford in January, according to his agent Gines Carvajal.

The Spain international has not featured for the Red Devils this season after falling out with manager Louis van Gaal over his refusal to play in certain Under-21 matches during the 2014-15 campaign.

He has since been linked to the likes of Chelsea and Newcastle United following injuries to their own goalkeepers, and Carvajal confimed his client will be on the move during the next transfer window.

“He needs to go to a place he feels is right for him,” he told Radio Marca. “He won’t be coming to Spain, unless he decides otherwise.

“It is obvious he must leave in January, and we are looking to find a move that he likes.”

Valdes was a reported target of Valencia over the summer, and Carvajal confirmed the Liga side did enquire about his services.

However, he also claimed that it would be difficult for his client to return to Spain having spent the first 14 years of his career with Barcelona.

“He had the option of coming to Valencia in the summer and did not want to,” he confirmed.
