It has been reported that Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has blocked Victor Valdes from moving to Newcastle United.
The Mirror says the Dutchman has refused to let the former Barcelona shot stopper leave the club – continuing their feud.
Valdes has been banished from the first-team at Old Trafford since the start of the season where he had an angry bust-up with the United boss.
The 34-year-old is desperate for an escape route and thought a move to Newcastle could be the answer only for Van Gaal to reject their approach.
Former Bayern Munich and Barca manager Van Gaal is happy for Valdes to sit out his contract at Old Trafford without playing any football whatsoever.
