Out-of-favour United goalie, Victor Valdes might be on his way back to Spain anytime soon following a disappointing time at the EPL. However, it wont be to Barcelona but Sevilla. The current Europa League title holders are in search of a shotstopper following the injury of their 2nd choice keeper, Beto. They also haven’t been contented with the performances of 1st choice goalie, Sergio Rico who had a poor outing against Rayo Vallecano, a game Sevilla however won with 3 goals to 2, making it their 2nd win in their first 7 League games of the new season.
And with Valdes already dropped from the United’s squad entirely, a free transfer away from Old Trafford is guaranteed the 33 year-old provided it’s not to a Premier League side. Chelsea have asked of the former Barcelona keeper’s availability who was recently excluded from the Red Devils’ official squad photo. A decision coming from LVG after Valdes’ refusal to play for the team’s under-21 last season. He has only appeared twice in the Premier League for United since his arrival last Summer. His falling-out with the Dutch handler has seen him get axed.
Sevilla believes the former Spain international would serve as a great backup, although it doesn’t seem he would see much playing time with the Spanish national team having called up Rico despite the club’s doubt over him. Sevilla started the season poorly, however their 3rd win out of 8 games came against Barcelona, making it 3 consecutive wins at home, and it could see them gather momentum as the League continues.
