Jose Mourinho rules out Valdes move


Chelsea were linked with Manchester United outcast

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly told the board he doesn’t want to sign Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes.

The Blues were linked with signing the Spaniard in yesterday’s papers, but according to fresh reports this morning, Mourinho has told Roman Abramovich and co. that he doesn’t want the club to sign him.

Chelsea were dealt a major blow with the news that Thibaut Courtois needed surgery on a knee injury, ruling him out for a few months and leaving the club with just Asmir Begovic as a recognised ‘keeper.

Mourinho Not Interested

However, Mourinho is happy to keep the Bosnian as number-one and is happy with backup Jamal Blackman to be his understudy.

The news will come as a blow to Valdes as the former-Barcelona star wants out of Old Trafford after falling out with Louis van Gaal.

The veteran didn’t receive a club suit and wasn’t given a squad number ahead of the 2015/2016 campaign.

Valdes was expected to leave United after refusing to play for the U-21s, but a proposed move to Besiktas fell through.
