Victor Valdes must forget about star wages if he wants to stay at Barcelona.

AS says Barca president Joan Laporta has no intention of putting the goalkeeper on par with the club's big earners like Lionel Messi and Samuel Eto'o.

Valdes' current deal expires in 2010 and his new agent, Gines Carvajal, admits patience is running out over negotiations regarding a new agreement.
