Manchester United’s third goalkeeper may have reached the last of his patient quotient. According to reports, Victor Valdes 33, says he is “fighting to be free” from his time in exile under Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United or maybe just Van Gaal, himself.
Photo above: Victor Valdes has issued another message, perhaps aimed at Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, claiming he is “fighting to be free”.
The former Barcelona goalkeeper joined the red devils on a free transfer last season but has been frozen out after a disagreement with Van Gaal, who accused him of refusing to play for the Under-21 side last term.
The question: is Valdes an outcast? Maybe Van Gaal should let him go. I think he was let go a long time ago but it appears that no team wants him or maybe again, he doesn’t know what he wants – but he is still under contract with Manchester United.
According to OMNISPORT, Valdes has taken to social media to state that he will continue to work hard behind the scenes in order to earn a transfer in January.
“Not to let down those who want to see me play again – that’s my motivation,” he wrote on his official Twitter account.
“I fight to be free and enjoy my profession.”
Valdes attached an image of him holding a piece of paper in his hand, which read: “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
OMNISPORT again reports that the 33-year-old has been linked with sides including Newcastle United and Espanyol.
I don’t think that Man United still needs Valdes. When his contract expires, Van Gaal should let him go.
Meanwhile, as I write this piece, I’m waiting to watch my Champions League match with PSV Eindhoven – in the net few minutes.
Up Man U!
