Barcelona president Sandro Rosell retains hope of keeping hold of Victor Valdes.

The goalkeeper refuses to discuss new terms with Barca and is expected to be sold in the summer.

Asked if the Spanish international keeper would stay, speaking to El Mundo Deportivo, Rosell said: "I hope so.

"We said at the time, it is best to wait until the summer when the club has won everything we can.

"With Tito well, we'll be talking to Victor, when all this is over I think he will reconsider his position.

"We are hoping that there is some reflection for Victor and he will talk quietly with the club, but I have always said whoever does not want to be at the club, then the door is opened for them to leave."
