Manchester United offered reserve goalkeeper Victor Valdes to Spanish outfit Sevilla, but Unai Emery decided he didn’t want to do a deal.
The former Barcelona stopper still has a year remaining on his Old Trafford deal, but is keen to engineer a move away before the end of the summer transfer window.
No Sevilla deal
Despite only having been purchased in January the 33-year-old was left out of United’s pre-season tour, with Louis van Gaal claiming that he had refused to play for the club’s U21 side last season.

As a result the pair’s relationship has massively soured, and according to talkSPORT United are now offering him to clubs in an attempt to remove him from their books.
With Sergio Romero and David de Gea ready to contest the number one berth there’s little need for him, but Sevilla, it seems, won’t be his next destination.
Exit on the cards?
That doesn’t mean of course that he won’t be leaving Old Trafford before the end of the summer. A goalkeeper of Valdes’ obvious quality and experience is a highly sought-after commodity around Europe, and there’s sure to be a number of clubs interested in striking a deal.
One potential obstacle will be his wage demands however, and that may be ultimately put Sevilla off.
