Barcelona star reiterates desire to leave

Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has again reiterated his desire to leave the Catalan giants next summer.

The Spaniard, who has been a Barcelona regular since 2003, is determined to leave the club when his contract runs out at the end of the current season.

Valdes has been linked with a move to Premier League duo Manchester City and Arsenal since his public admission, in which he said the pressure to win 'is a heavy weight to carry'.

Speaking after Barcelona's narrow 3-2 win over Sevilla, Valdes said: "I have spoken with the club without problems but my choice has not changed. I am happy for this season and after, I leave.

"I do not need to add more quotes."

Reports suggest Barcelona boss Gerardo Martino could make a move for Chelsea goalkeeper Thibault Courtois, who has been plying his trade at Atletico Madrid since his move from Genk to Stamford Bridge in 2011.

However it may take a fee of around £30million to convince Jose Mourinho's side into selling one of the world's best young goalkeepers.

Courtois is seen as the long-term successor to Petr Cech and the 21-year-old is already a regular for the Belgium national side.
