Manchester United’s fourth choice goalkeeper, Víctor Valdés, has been subject to many transfer rumours since Louis van Gaal said that he no longer wants him in his team.
After playing two games at the end of last season, to cover for an injured David De Gea, Valdés managed to keep a clean sheet and only concede one goal.
It was during the pre-season tour of the United States that Manchester United’s manager announced that Valdés was no longer a part of his plans, as the goalkeeper refused to play for the U21’s to gain match fitness.
Since then, a whole host of teams have been linked to the goalkeeper.
At the end of the summer transfer window, it looked as though Beşiktaş were going to acquire the Spaniard but, they said that he would have a negative effect on their dressing room.
C.F. Valencia recently pulled away from negotiations as his wage demands were too steep for them.
Now Sevilla president, José Castro, has announced, at a Europapress event, that despite reported interest, “Valdés is not an option”.
The only club that was tracking the ex-Barcelona keeper, that hasn’t officially pulled out of the chase, is Chelsea. José Mourinho needs a new back up keeper as Thibaut Courtois could be out injured past December.
Manchester United have stated that they are willing to buy out the remainder of Valdés’ contract, if he was to move to a non-Premier League club.
