Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes’s Kit moved to Under 21s’ dressing-room area
Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes has been left in no doubt that his future lies away from Old Trafford.
Although Real Madrid are expected to make another concerted effort to sign David de Gea this week, Valdes remains set on leaving too.
His place at the club was underlined on Sunday when he returned to Carrington to find that his kit had been moved to the Under 21s’ dressing-room area and he was told he was no longer with the first-team squad.
The move is understood to have upset his Spanish-speaking team-mates, who believe the action is disrespectful to the vastly experienced 33-year-old who won three Champions League titles with Barcelona.
Valdes is popular among his team-mates but United manager Louis van Gaal left the keeper off their tour to USA after criticising his attitude and saying he had refused to play for the Under 21s.
