Metro have Liverpool fans looking confused here in the Football Transfer Tavern after they claimed that the Reds might well miss out on Victor Valdes.
The former Barcelona keeper is now a free agent and is currently considering his options.
It had looked like Anfield was his preferred destination at one point with Brendan Rodgers keen to bring in an established keeper to rival current number one Simon Mingolet.
However, after refusing to entertain the notion of a trial, it appears Valdes will no longer be joining the Reds.
As one of our punters notes, given Valdes’ injury issues, we can totally understand Rodgers asking him to come to the training ground and prove his fitness.
He is not Zlatan Ibrahimovic after all and average footballers are fully expected to undergo medicals and trials.
There are other options for Valdes and the keeper still feels he can compete at the highest level but may well need to get used to having a couple of trials before he can do so again!
Liverpool fans. Is Valdes clearly a diva you can do without at the club now you also have Mario Balotelli or will this be an Arsene Wenger-like mistake? Let us know your thoughts below.
