Valdes will leave Barcelona when contract expires

Posted on by SoccerPunter

Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has reiterated his intention to leave the Spain Primera Division club once his existing contract expires in 2014.

There have been rumours that Victor Valdes will join Monaco in France Ligue 1 next season. However, nothing has been finalized.

Valdes explained that the “responsibility and pressure” as a Barcelona goalkeeper is too much for him to take, prompted him to eventually move on.

The 31-year-old Victor Valdes, who has been a regular starter at Barcelona for 12 years, insisted that his decision to move on is not related to financial terms.

In Spain Primera Division on Saturday night, Barcelona vs MalagaVictor Valdes is expected to be in the starting line-up at the Camp Nou. It is also the final match of the La Liga season.

“I consider that my cycle as a Barcelona player will come to an end when my current contract expires in 2014,” said Valdes, who nevertheless gave no details regarding possible interest in him from elsewhere.

“I understand that with 18 months’ warning there should be sufficient time to find the best solution for the club and for the player, so that Barca keep on winning and so do I,” he explained.

“In January, I said I could see myself playing in other leagues, getting to know something different and looking for different sources of motivation.”

The Spanish international, in Spain’s squad for the Confederations Cup, had been linked with a move to big-spending Monaco this summer.

Liverpool’s Pepe Reina – formerly of Barcelona – has been linked with a return to the Camp Nou to replace Valdes, while Manchester United’s David de Gea and Valencia’a Vicente Guaita are also said to be on their list of possible targets.
