A row over playing time left Victor Valdes without a number at Old Trafford for the 2015-16 season.
After keeping former No. 2 goalkeeper Victor Valdes on the transfer list since the summer, Man United finally found a buyer for the disgruntled veteran.
According to the Metro, Man United have agreed to transfer terms with Turkish Super Lig giants Besiktas for an unspecified fee. The move comes after Valdes was not given a squad number to start the 2015-16 season following his alleged refusal to play in a reserve game.
Earlier this summer, the 33-year-old Victor Valdes was believed to be in the fastlane to become the Red Devils’ starting goalkeeper after a transfer row between the club and David de Gea. But the emergence of Sergio Romero – who leads the Premier League with three clean sheets through three weeks – has made Valdes expendable.
If the deal goes through, Valdes would become the third Man United player this year to be sent to Turkey, joining the likes of Robin van Persie and Luis Nani in the Super Lig.
