Valdes set to leave Manchester United on loan deal – reports
LONDON (Reuters) – Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes’s unhappy stay at Old Trafford looks to be drawing to a close with the Spaniard on the verge of a loan move to Belgium club Standard Liege, according to media reports on Thursday.
The 33-year-old former Barcelona keeper, who joined United last season when he was out of contract as possible cover for compatriot David De Gea, has made only two appearances.
United would not comment on Valdes’s future on Thursday, but the player appeared to be saying goodbye when he posted a message on social networking site Instagram thanking the club’s fans for their support, saying “I will never forget”.
