Victor Valdes: Barcelona goalkeeper will not sign a new contract

The 30-year-old has spent his entire professional career at the Nou Camp but, in a statement released by his agents, has revealed the "irrevocable decision" not to pen a new deal.

Thursday's statement from principal agent Gines Carvajal to news agency Efe read: "The agents of Victor Valdes have communicated to Barcelona in a meeting held this afternoon the irrevocable decision of the player to not renew his contract."

The Spain international's deal expires in June 2014 but Barca are likely to have interest in Valdes before then and speculation will mount regarding his future.

Valdes recently suggested he would consider a move to another league and that opens up the possibility of a reunion with former Barcelona head coach Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
