Manchester United are ready to let Victor Valdes’ leave Old Trafford on the condition that he will not join rival Premier League clubs.
Chelsea and Liverpool were linked with a move to sign the Spanish goalkeeper.
Louis van Gaal has already made it clear that the former Barcelona man is not in his plans, but the Red Devils will not allow their player to join a rival club.
Valdes joined United last January after six months without a club hoping to further his career, but the move never worked out.
He soon fell out with manager Van Gaal and was asked to leave in the summer transfer window.
The Spaniard was close to joining Turkish outfit Besiktas on deadline day, but the move fell through as the Turkish side attempted to change the terms of an agreed deal.
Back at Old Trafford, he was expected to get his turn when De Gea left. However, a delay in the paperwork saw David De Gea’s move to Real Madrid break down.
Manchester United are happy to cancel his contract but would block a move to the rival club.
Chelsea wants the former Barcelona goalkeeper to replace injured Thibaut Courtois.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are unconvinced with the performance of Simon Mignolet and wants to enhance competition in their squad.
It is believed that the club have already discussed the possibility of signing Valdes, but United didn’t want him to join their fierce rival.
