Victor Valdes: Will not be extending his Barcelona contract

Victor Valdes: Will not be extending his Barcelona contract

The long-serving shot-stopper has informed the powers that be at Camp Nou that he will not be penning an extension to his current deal.

That means Valdes will be heading through the exits in the summer of 2014.

Losing a player of such vast experience, and a home-grown talent, is far from ideal, but Barcelona are not too concerned about filling the void.

"There's no need to give this too much attention," Barcelona vice-president Carles Vilarrubi told TV3.

"We have sufficient resources to find a good replacement.

"We now have a job on our hands and our task is to find a new goalkeeper.

"I have the feeling that Valdes is pretty certain about his decision. He wants to leave and we have to respect his wish."

o is Jordan Ibe overqualified for this list or what? To be honest I was expecting to see his name, I thought he'd fit in perfectly. Maybe his name is too familiar? Because otherwise this list should be made for him. You could actually just insert his name & stats into the middle paragraph about Brandt and it would describe Ibe.

hat a wonderful compliment - that Wenger has been able to raise more funds for players running a football club than Jose's patron has in running the economy of a small country. I guess it shows there are different kinds of success.
