Monaco Pull Out Of Valdes Deal

French runners-up, AS Monaco, have reportedly pulled out of the deal with FC Barcelona goalkeeper, Victor Valdes.

According to L’Equipe, Monaco have decided against signing Valdes on a free transfer despite signing a pre-contract months ago.

Valdes’ contract at Barcelona runs out on 30 June and the 32-year-old was reportedly looking for a new challenge.

However, the Spaniard’s serious knee injury and the good form of Monaco keeper, Danijel Subasic, have reportedly changed the mind-set of Monaco's club bosses.

L’Equipe reports the French side still want to sign new goalkeeper to compete with Subasic, but one with a lower reputation than Valdes.

Monaco had previously stated that they would respect their deal with Valdes’ despite his injury, but with the Spain international reportedly failing all medical test the Ligue 1 side now pulled the plug on the transfer.

“Monaco have decided not to ratify the arrival of Valdes from Barcelona, despite his pre-contract,” L’Equipe explains.

Valdes could now even stay at Barcelona to guide new first-choice signing Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
