Legend looking to join league rivals from Man United in January

The agent of Victor Valdes has revealed his client is keen to stay in England should Manchester United allow him to leave in Janaury, the Standard reports.

The 33 year-old joined the Red Devils in Janaury, having trained with the club from November as he regained fitness following a back injury, and went onto make two league appearances toward the end of the term, following an injury to first-choice David De Gea.

The Barcelona legend has been exiled by the Manchester club, forced to train away from the first-team squad, as well as refusing him a locker or squad number this season.

The shot-stopper has since been linked with a move to Chelsea or Liverpool, although the former recently agreed a contract with Marco Amelia, who was without a club.

Although United are unlikely to allow him to move to Anfield, the goalkeeper has been revealed as keen on staying in the English top-flight, as he looks to find a new club this winter.

His agent said: “We are relying on Manchester United letting Victor go.

“The Premier League is very attractive and Valdes want to stay because he has adapted perfectly to England, but we are not closing the door to any options.

“There are still two months until the transfer window opens and there is nothing concrete, but the intention is to leave Manchester United.”

Maybe Tim Krul’s injury could persuade Newcastle to make him an offer.
