After a failed transfer move to Besiktas, Valdes is snubbed from Manchester United’s Champions League squad as well.
De Gea – who was a Real Madrid target has seen his name included in the Champions League.
The Manchester United goalkeeper has been an outcast at the club since falling out with manager Louis van Gaal, who accused him of refusing to play for the Under 21s.
He was set to end a miserable stint at Old Trafford by sealing a switch to Besiktas but the Turkish club could not agree a deal and the transfer window closed with no agreement in place.
A disappointed Valdes was open to an attempt at a reconciliation with Van Gaal after his move fell through. Manchester United and Louis Van Gaal were willing to allow Valdes to leave on a free transfer.
But they are currently unwilling to pay up the ex-Spain international’s contract, which expires next summer.
