Valdes to honor his contract with Barcelona

Valdes to honor his contract with Barcelona

Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes revealed he wants to see off his contract with La Liga giants before moving to another club.

The 31-year-old Spaniard, who has been Barca’s firm first-choice player for more than decade and recently made his 500th outing, has been linked with a move to French moneybags Monaco. However the player put an end to the speculation, saying he remains at Camp Nou for one more season. Valdes said: “I consider that my cycle as a Barcelona player will come to an end when my current contract expires in 2014. I understand that with 18 months’ warning there should be sufficient time to find the best solution for the club and for the player, so that Barca keep on winning and so do I.

“In January, I said I could see myself playing in other leagues, getting to know something different and looking for different sources of motivation. Being the goalkeeper at the club is a big weight to carry and I have felt it since I was very young. It is a position that carries with it a lot of responsibility, there is a lot of pressure on you, and the demands I put on myself to make sure Barca win is a heavy weight to carry too,” he added.
