Even as the ill-fated De Gea-Real Madrid transfer saga unfolded, Valdes was still nowhere close to being named the starting goalkeeper, with the team signing Sergio Romero and not issuing him a jersey number this season. Now Valdes is making his wishes clear to Louis van Gaal and the rest of the world.
Taking to Twitter, Valdes posted this fascinating image on Twitter:
No defraudar a los que desean volver a verme jugar, mi motivación. Lucho por ser Libre y disfrutar de mi profesión. pic.twitter.com/rhs7tCNofo

The message [translated by the Metro] on the hand reads, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
The text of the Tweet says, “To not let down those that want to see me play again is my motivation.
“I fight to be free and to enjoy my profession.”
The message appears to be a clear sign that Valdes is ready to leave Man United behind, and the Metro reported that other teams including Newcastle United would be more than willing to take him.
Prior to his move to Man United, Valdes played 12 seasons for Barcelona, making 387 starts during his tenure. He won the Zamora Trophy for fewest goals per game five times, two La Liga Goalkeeper of the Year awards, and over 20 total titles with Barcelona.
