No United switch for Valdes

17 June 2009 08:28
Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes is not about to sign for Manchester United, according to the player's agent. It had been claimed that the 27-year-old, who has only 12 months left on his Nou Camp contract, was about to seal a move to Old Trafford where he would challenge Edwin van der Sar for the number one shirt. However, Valdes' agent, Gines Carvajal, insisted on Catalan radio station RAC 1: "We don't have any offers and nor are we going to listen to any, wherever they come from, because Victor has a year left on his contract and he owes it to Barcelona. "We don't want to listen to anything which will distract us from the idea of renewing at Barcelona. "Our desire is that the situation sorts itself out. As we still have a lot of time, that's where we are. "It's complicated, there are differences, because if there weren't then we would have already renewed. "Our desire is to continue negotiating. On our part, we are not breaking up any talks and Barca have not told me that they are either."
