Former Barca star rejects offer to join Manchester United

Victor ValdesMetro have literally STUNNED punters in the Football Transfer Tavern as they have claimed Victor Valdes was offered the chance to join Manchester United and actually rejected the Red Devils.

Louis van Gaal was reportedly keen on the former Barcelona stopper joining the club as an understudy to current number one David De Gea, but not only will Valdes refuse to have a trial at a club, he will not be happy playing second fiddle to the likes of the Spaniard – and wants to be the first pick at his new club.

A free Valdes is a good prospect for pretty much any club and we think that should Petr Cech chose to leave Chelsea in the winter, Jose Mourinho might just consider making a play for the former Barcelona player – although playing second fiddle to Thibaut Courtois might not appeal to him either!

One of our punters notes it could well be a long time before the keeper finds a top club if that is his attitude!

Manchester United fans. Do you think that Valdes was right to turn the chance to join you down? Let us know your thoughts below.
