The Middlesbrough fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern are discussing reports that a World Cup winner could be set to sign for the club.
According to reports in The Daily Star former Barcelona and Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes is to undergo a medical at the Riverside Stadium.
Aitor Karanka feels the need to add a quality goalkeeper to his ranks with the inconsistent form of Dimi Konstantopoulos not filling him with confidence for the upcoming season.
The World Cup winner has most recently been playing on loan for Standard Liege before being released from Old Trafford at the end of last season.
Speculation surrounding the Spaniard moving to Middlesbrough intensified yesterday when the 34-year-old began following the club on his own official page.
