Manchester United are apparently willing to terminate the contract of goalkeeper Victor Valdes, but will only do so if he leaves the Premier League, according to the Daily Mail.

The former Barcelona stopper, who joined the club on a free transfer in January this year (via ManUtd.com), has become an outcast under Louis van Gaal, making just two appearances in the first team during that time.
The Mail highlights that the pair have fallen out, and following David de Gea signing a new deal with the club, Valdes’ path to the first team looks blocked.
Valdes’ contract with the Red Devils is set to expire at the end of the season, but both parties are now believed to be keen on bringing his stay at Old Trafford to a premature end.
This means that United would have to pay a severance fee to rid themselves of the former Spanish international, which The Mail claims they are willing to pay providing he does not go on to join another Premier League side.
