ESPN have shaken up the Football Transfer Tavern with their latest claim and our landlord cannot wait to elaborate further.
He notes that Arsenal and Manchester City target Victor Valdes has been talking up the Premier League ahead of the summer, when he is of course out of contract with Barcelona.
The long serving Spanish keeper has taken the decision to leave the Camp Nou on a high, and has made no secret of the fact that he wants to develop as a player and experience another league – and the culture that comes with it.
Manchester City were heavily linked with the player, but after news reached our ears that Arsene Wenger is not entirely happy with his current number one, the International Business Times today reported that the Gunners would also be keen on Valdes. He is after all available on a free and we all know how much Wenger deplores spending cash!
Valdes spoke about a move and claimed: “The Premier League is a very attractive league, which I have followed for years,
“I like to analyse possible opponents who you might meet in European competition. The timing of when I communicate where I will go is not important at the moment. I am focused on doing well here, with my Barca jersey. The other stuff does not come into it.”
Do the likes of Arsenal & City need Valdes when Hart and Szczesny are already between the posts? Let us know your thoughts below.
