Manchester United fans are reaching for the top shelf tequila here in the Football Transfer Tavern after hearing from the Daily Mail that their star man David De Gea could be out for FOUR weeks.
This comes on the back of the goalkeeper dislocating his finger whilst on international duty with Spain and it seems that could well be the scenario required to convince Victor Valdes to join the club he has been training with, fighting for the number one spot in turn.
Earlier in he week, De Gea admitted he would welcome the former Barcelona stopper to Old Trafford and we think that United fans will be praying for some top class back up to De Gea – which if they are honest at the minute, they simply do not have.
It is obviously a huge blow for United boss Louis van Gaal, with the Spaniard being one of the very best players on the field this term, saving United time and time again.
Without him our punters dread to think what will happen to the Red Devils!
Manchester United fans. Would you welcome Valdes to Old Trafford as De Gea’s back-up option? Let us know your thoughts below.
