Two of Mexico’s biggest clubs, Atlas and Veracruz, are battling for the signature of Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Valdes has been frozen out at Man United after falling out with Louis van Gaal over an apparent refusal to play for the U21s last season.

Van Gaal reportedly banned the 33-year-old from training with the first-team and did not invite him to a UNICEF charity dinner event earlier this term.

The Spanish shot stopper has a contract with Man United until the end of the season but is likely to leave when the January transfer window opens.

Newcastle United and Celta Vigo were also said to be in for Valdes but it appears as if their interest has cooled.

Valdes has enjoyed a hugely successful career and it is a shame to see it fizzle out in meek fashion at United. It would be best for all parties involved if he left in January.
