Victor Valdes did not play in any of the 4 opening matches of the season for Manchester United and from the looks of it; the Spanish shot-stopper will not play an important role for the Premier League club at all.
The 33 year old player has an impressive trophy collection as he basically won every single major title when he was playing for Barcelona but these titles don’t mean anything to Louis van Gaal as the Dutch manager prefers using Sergio Romero as his main goal-keeper but this is only due to a fall out in which Victor Valdes decided not to play in a reserve game and this has started a string of negative consequences that does not favor Valdes in any way.
The situation of Victor Valdes in Old Trafford is so dire that the veteran player was not even in the bench of Manchester United for their opening 4 matches. Sergio Romero has played in all the matches and in the sidelines; the 22 year old Sam Johnstone is the one who has been sitting on the bench.
During the summer transfer window, there interest from the Turkish side Besiktas and a deal was on the verge of happening but the transfer never occurred and now Victor Valdes has to either try to reconciliate with Louis van Gaal and attempt to earn playing time or settle with a place in the dressing room of Manchester United.
Another option for Victor Valdes is for him to snatch a loan deal and join a different club where he can get playing time.
Pedro is one of the national teammates of Victor Valdes and the Spanish attacker who is currently playing for Chelsea, stated that his dissatisfaction in seeing Valdes struggle as he said: “No. It is true that I do not like this treatment to my teammates, especially Victor who has been a reference for me as a companion and a great professional,” Pedro told Spanish newspaper Marca.

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini played an integral part in the club’s revival in fortunes towards the end of the season.
The Belgian seemingly was heading towards an exit when Louis Van Gaal took over. After all, he had just completed a very poor first season at Old Trafford and he was widely rated as not being a ‘United type of player’. Amidst all such opinions,Fellaini managed to play a vital role in Unitedreturning to the Champions League. Some of his key goals came in key matches – like against West Brom – when United were struggling to make any impact.
The 27-year-old is at the peak of his career and United are set to take advantage of this physical presence in a big way going forward. The former Everton man finished last season with seven goals from 27 matches. More importantly, he has helped retain the ball in the attacking third of the pitch due to his physical presence.Fellaini, though, sees his future at United transforming into a defensive midfielder going forward. Often players resorted to playing in this position towards the end of their career, but Fellaini started out here and sees himself ending his career in this position as well.

Manchester United defender Phil Jones says that the players are starting to understand the tactics of manager Louis van Gaal and this has coincided with the significant improvement in form. United have been one of the top teams in the Premier League in 2015. They are currently on a run of four straight victories. It has made them almost certain of a top four finish, which was the primary objective of the club at the start of the campaign. Apart from their return to Champions League, United can also look forward to challenging for the title next season.
Such has been their form that they have managed to convert a nine-point deficit over Manchester City in the first half of the season into a four-point advantage going towards the end of the campaign. Van Gaal adopted the 3-5-2 formation during the early part of the season and this did not suit the players at all. It has only been after the return to playing four at the back that the players have started looking comfortable. Since then, they have managed to understand the tactics of the Dutchman in a much better way. Jones says that this is a huge reason behind their revival in form.
