Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are reading the latest news story from the Daily Mail with surprise, with the publication claiming that the Blues are considering a move for Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes, as an emergency measure if Asmir Begovic gets injured.
Now, Chelsea fans here in the Tavern are still struggling to come to terms with the news that first-choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has been ruled out with injury for a sizeable amount of time.
Valdes has struggled to break his way into the first-team at Manchester United during his time at the club, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Spaniard did depart Old Trafford for pastures new.
Our landlord here in the Tavern feels that Valdes still has a lot more to give in his career, and a move to Chelsea could be a good place to end his playing career.
A small group of Blues fans enjoying a pint of the Tavern’s latest ale are discussing this news, with them all admitting that having Valdes as a back-up would be excellent!
