Wind back the clocks to last January and the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern were celebrating the capture of Victor Valdes on a free transfer, believing he added a wealth of depth to the squad.
Things haven’t turned out as planned though, with Valdes having more arguments with Louis Van Gaal than our regular does with his wife. The Dutch manager claimed Valdes refused to play for the reserves, whilst our punter’s wife says he spends too much time in here.
For the record, both of the accused strenuously deny the claims from the other party- but we know for a fact that one of the above is true.
Back to football though, it seems the love lost between Van Gaal and Valdes could spark the end of the Spaniard’s short time in Manchester as sources from ESPN state the Red Devils are prepared to cancel his contract.
There’s a catch though, as the report says United are only willing to do that if he doesn’t join another Premier League club- with Liverpool and Chelsea both said to be interested in the former Barcelona man.
Seems a bit cheeky to us. Sounds like breaking up with your girlfriend but demanding she doesn’t sneak of with your best mate.
