Louis van Gaal has brutally made it clear that Victor Valdes will not be able to revive his Manchester United career by moving his training gear to the dressing-room designated for the Under-21s, according to reports from the Daily Mail
With David De Gea widely expected to leave Manchester United this summer, it was touted that the Red Devils already had a readymade replacement on their ranks in the form of Victor Valdes.
Van Gaal slammed Valdes for defying his orders
Surprisingly though, Valdes was omitted from the 30-man United squad which travelled to the United States for a pre-season tour and in an astonishing revelation to the media, manager Louis van Gaal said that he would be actively looking to sell the 33-year old.
The reason behind Valdes falling foul to van Gaal was due to the goalkeeper allegedly refusing to play for the Under-21 team last season. Valdes has since been training back in Carrington but has still not found a new club as of yet.

Valdes had hit back at Van Gaal
The first team players made a return to Carrington on Sunday and in a brutal message by van Gaal that Valdes is no longer part of the senior side; his training gear was moved to the dressing room designated to the Under-21s according to reports from the Daily Mail.
The Daily Mail goes on to claim that van Gaal’s treatment of Valdes has astonished United’s Spanish contingent David De Gea, Ander Herrera and Juan Mata, and it is believed that the Dutch manager is putting the team harmony at the club under risk due to his iron fisted stance.
