David De Gea looks to be staying at Manchester United, and perhaps that’s moved Victor Valdes on the transfer list.

The longtime Barcelona starter is leaving Old Trafford after refusing to play for the reserves, according to the BBC.

Louis van Gaal wasn’t having any part of Valdes’ act, and says he will sell the 33-year-old standard.

So where will he go? Aside from some youth time at Tenerife, Valdes has spent almost every moment of his professional career with Barcelona. There should be plenty of interest in La Liga, but how big of a club does Valdes demand? How about his “wage packet”?

He’ll end his time with United playing just a pair of draws, one a clean sheet that helped relegate Hull City.
