Manchester United have informed Anders Lindegaard that he is free to leave Old Trafford for nothing this summer, despite having another year left to run on his current contract, the Daily
The decision comes just a day after the Daily Mail reported that Victor Valdes – who also has a year to run on his deal (via Mail) – had had his kit moved to the under-21 dressing room after being told that he was no longer to be involved with the first-team.
While the push to get Valdes out of the door comes after a public spat with manager Louis van Gaal (via Mail), the 31-year-old’s imminent departure appears to be slightly more amicable, having simply failed to make the grade with the Premier League side.
The Denmark international moved to England in 2011, but was followed six months later by David de Gea. Despite initially struggling to prove his quality, Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes, and Louis van Gaal have all used the Spaniard, limiting Lindegaard to just 19 Premier League appearances in four and a half years.
The Express suggest that his next move is likely to see him end up in La Liga.
