Victor Valdes is keen to leave Manchester United this January - agent

Now that the end is in sight with regards to Victor Valdes’ Manchester United nightmare one would assume he wants to get as far away from English football as possible. Well, you can assume that, but you’d be wrong to do so. According to the player’s agent, Gines Carvajal, Valdes IS looking to leave Old Trafford at the next available opportunity, but wants to stay in the Premier League as he believes the division can still offer him something. Carvajal said Valdes was depending on United to let him depart, inferring a sticky situation is still possible.
