Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is willing to let Victor Valdes leave the club on a free transfer, according to the Mirror.
However, he does not want him to move to another Premier League outfit, which would rule out a switch to fierce rivals Liverpool who have been linked with a move to secure his services.
Valdes has not featured for the Red Devils this season, and played for them just twice last season with both of his appearances coming at the very end of the campaign.
A summer move to Turkish side Besiktas was on the cards, though the potential deal fell through.
Prior to his move to Old Trafford, the thirty-three year old spent twelve years in Barcelona’s first team, racking up five hundred and thirty-five games for them in all competitions and winning a whole host of major honours.
He has been capped twenty times for Spain and was part of their victorious squads for the 2010 World Cup and 2012 European Championships.
