Manchester United have agreed to allow Victor Valdes to leave during the January transfer window, according to reports from the Daily Star
Victor Valdes joined Manchester United last January and it was widely expected that the Spaniard would be going on to replace David De Gea as the number one goalkeeper at Old Trafford.
However, a bitter fallout with manager Louis van Gaal led to Valdes being banished away from both the first team as well as the Under-21’s and it looked certain that the former Spanish international would be leaving the Premier League side over the summer. However, a move did not come into fruition and Valdes remained put at United over the last six months.
With the January transfer window reopening, the goalkeeper has finally been tipped to finalize his departure from Old Trafford and a move back to Spain or Turkey had been seen on the cards.
Now to facilitate a smoother exit of Valdes, it can be revealed that United have agreed to allow the 33-year oldto leave on a free transfer – if reports from the Daily Star are to be believed.
Valdes’ representatives had recently held talks with United over the termination of the contract and the ex-Barcelona custodian is now free to enter into negotiations with interested parties.
