- Manchester United are willing to terminate Victor Valdes’ contract
- Ex-Barcelona keeper has been outcast after falling out with Louis van Gaal
- Premier League leaders do not want to let him leave for rivals
Manchester United are willing to rip up Victor Valdes’ contract, but only if he leaves the Premier League.
The former Barcelona goalkeeper is an Old Trafford outcast under Louis van Gaal after falling out of favour with Dutch manager.
The Spaniard’s chances of first-team football are virtually non-existent – particularly after David de Gea was reintegrated into Van Gaal’s starting XI.
Manchester United are prepared to let Victor Valdes leave as long as it’s not for another Premier League club

Valdes’ current deal expires at the end of the season, but there is a willingness from both parties to end his stay at Old Trafford.
That would mean agreeing a severance package on the remainder of Valdes’ deal.

United are open to terminating Valdes’ deal so he can join another club; but do not want to strengthen one of their domestic rivals; particularly with top-four places up for grabs.
With the transfer window closed, as it stands, Valdes would need to wait until the January before he could be signed by a another club.
However, he could sign for a new side on a free transfer outside the transfer window if he can agree a deal with United to tear up his contract.
