Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes hopes to win the Champions League in his final season with the Spanish Champions, reports.

Valdes contract with Barcelona runs out at the end of the season and the Spaniard has already confirmed that he won’t be signing a new deal, preferring to move to another club where there is less pressure to succeed.

The goalkeeper has already had a highly successful career at the Nou Camp but he wants to top it off by winning the Champions League with Barcelona once again.

“I’d like to leave after lifting another European Cup, that would be a very nice end to this cycle,” said Valdes.

The Spaniard also said that he was sad at Tito Vilanova’s departure from the Nou Camp due to health reasons but he welcomed the arrival of Gerardo Martino, who was unveiled at Barcelona’s new manager on Friday.

“It is news that you never want to hear,” he said. “He has been through a tough time and has had great misfortune. Now he has to focus on winning this game and I am sure that he will”.

“Martino is someone that can be very close to the players. I have had the opportunity to chat with him and his staff.

“He is an ambitious person and he has a very large project in mind – he will want to put his mark on it. He has asked us not to get tired of winning.”

Valdes had been linked with a move away from the Nou Camp this summer, with Arsenal and AS Monaco reportedly interested but he confirmed in June that he wanted to see out his contract with the Spanish Champions.
