Barca not planning for Valdes sale

Barcelona vice-president Josep Maria Bartomeu says the club have no intention of selling Victor Valdes or signing a replacement for the wantaway goalkeeper in the summer.

Valdes is Barcelona's current No. 1

Valdes, who has made it clear that he does not want to extend his contract when it ends in June 2014, has been linked with a summer move to clubs including Arsenal, Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain and Anzhi Makhachkala.

Meanwhile, Barca were reported to have been weighing up moves for potential successors including Valencia’s Vicente Guaita, Manchester United’s David de Gea and Liverpool’s Pepe Reina.

However, Bartomeu said the blaugrana club’s preferred option was for Valdes, 31, to remain as first choice for next season at least.

“We would prefer for him to stay until 2014 than to sell him this summer,” Bartomeu said. “We have no fixed date in this case - one option is that he sees out his contract. So we would not sign a new 'keeper.”

Recent Catalan media reports have said coach Tito Vilanova would make another attempt to get Valdes to change his mind about leaving the club for which he has kept goal for 12 seasons and won three Champions Leagues and five La Liga titles.

President Sandro Rosell had let the player know that there was still time to reconsider, adding: "Rosell has had contact with Valdes to let him know clearly that the doors are open for him to continue at the club,” he said.

Another Barca player whose future appears up in the air is midfielder Alex Song, who is unhappy at his limited playing time this season, his cousin Rigobert has said.

Song, who joined from Arsenal for €17 million in summer 2012, has made 28 appearances in his first season at Barca, but mostly either as a substitute or in less high-profile cup games.

Former Liverpool, West Ham and Galatasaray defender Rigobert suggested his cousin was not happy with such a secondary role.

“Barcelona were very determined to sign him last summer and Alex turned down many other big teams to sign for them,” he said.

“Getting into the Barcelona starting team is not easy, but this season he has only played as a substitute. He is not happy - at Arsenal he was a leader on and off the pitch. At Barcelona, he does not feel that way.”
