I don't think so. I know it says so on PCS but I haven't heard any other indications of it.
I ask because I was reviewing the newest lines from my [legal] sportsbook tonight, and they were offering +15000 (American) on Valverde to win Flanders, which would be a $150 win on a $1 bet. So I put a dollar on him, but only then thought that he might not even ride lol. (in which case they would just refund the bet so nbd)
 
Is Valverde gonna ride Flanders this year, guys?
No.
After Valencia he'll ride Murcia, then some sort of Spanish Strade Bianche, then Andalusia and then the real Strade Bianche. That's the first bloc.
In the second bloc, he will ride either Catalunya or Itzulia, and then the Ardennes. although he was not sure about Amstel, cause it is moved a bit earlier because of Roubaix.
After Ardennes he will ride the most beautiful race in the world - Il Giro!

Here, in this article on Velonews they state as well that he is riding Flanders. Not sure what their source is: https://www.velonews.com/news/road/final-adios-remains-uncertain-for-alejandro-valverde-in-farewell-season/

Btw: It was announced yesterday in some newspapers that he will indeed ride Catalunya and lead the team there: https://www.ccma.cat/esport3/alejandro-valverde-liderara-el-movistar-team-a-la-volta-a-catalunya/noticia/3143575/

In a couple of interviews about his program he said no Amstel. Maybe in April he'll do some altitude for the Giro like in 2016, but for the moment the program looks a bit different, in 2016 was Strade, Tirreno, Sanremo, recons of Giro stages in the Alps, altitude, Castilla y Leon, Flèche and Liege whereas this year with the confirmation of Catalunya could fit some recons after Strade and altitude after Catalunya going straight to Flèche and Liege after it.
