The Liverpool Echo have revealed that Liverpool have ended their pursuit for Victor Valdes as he has been offered the opportunity to train with Manchester United.
It is also believed that the Red’s confidence in signing the 32-year-old, who suffered a cruciate ligament injury, faded since recent talks with the player’s representatives.
And it is thought Liverpool wanted garuntees about a contract prior to Valdes proving that he had made a full recovery.
Brendan Rodgers will now have to look elsewhere as he seeks to bring in greater competition for his current number one, Simon Mignolet.
As the Belgian has been in and out of the spotlight for criticism since moving to Liverpool.
And many punters in the Tavern believe they must bring in a better a keeper if the Reds are serious about consistently challenging for the title every season.
Because it is proved that if he didn’t make half the blunders he did last season, Liverpool will have most likely won the league.
