Barcelona chief Bartomeu rules out Handanovic bid: No plans to sell Valdes

Barcelona have declared they won't be moving for Inter Milan goalkeeper Samir Handanovic.

Barca insist they're happy for Victor Valdes to now see out his contract.

"We still need to make a decision, but we have plenty of time," Vice-President Josep Maria Bartomeu told Catalunya Radio.

"We don't need a Valdes replacement immediately as he's told us that he will leave in 2014. We consider Valdes to be the best goalkeeper in the world, but he doesn't want to stay.

"When we sign a new goalkeeper we will thank Victor and let him go, but we hope he reconsiders before then."
