Van Gaal doesn’t want him to sign for another big club in the Premier League
Movements in Manchester United to let Víctor Valdés leave. According to some English media, the club may allow his departure with a single condition: Van Gaal doesn’t want him to sign for another big club in the Premier League. The coach doesn’t want to reinforce opponents of the competition or to face Valdés being in another team.
Chelsea, where Courtois is injured for 4 months, and Liverpool, with doubts on the starting goalkeeper Mignolet, are the two more interested clubs to sign former Barcelona player. If Valdés wants to leave right now, he will have to accept not going to one of these clubs. Otherwise, he will have to wait for a transfer in the winter market.
Valdés situation in Manchester United is unsustainable: Van Gaal banned them to train with first team and he can only do it with Academy coaches.
