His brief Manchester United career so far has resembled something of a disaster with Victor Valdes being the dictionary definition of an outcast under Louis van Gaal right now.
Having signed Sergio Romero and retained David De Gea in the summer, Valdes is simply surplus to requirements but the former Barcelona man failed to negotiate a move away from Old Trafford before September 1st.
At the end of last month, The Mirror claimed van Gaal would happily sanction an exit for Valdes in January on the condition that he didn’t sign for Liverpool as an upgrade upon Simon Mignolet.
Since then, Newcastle United have also been linked with the signing of Valdes given the season ending injury as suffered by Tim Krul on Netherlands duty.
It definitely seems a case of when, where and not if regarding Valdes’ impending departure from Old Trafford.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
