Manchester United fans are looking towards our landlord who has a whole heap of gossip from Metro about their club and it all surrounds Victor Valdes.
The former Barcelona goalkeeper has been training with Manchester United after failing to secure his expected move to Monaco.
Now it seems that Valdes is determined to secure a contract with Manchester United meaning Liverpool’s hopes of potentially replacing Simon Mignolet with the Spaniard are now out of the question.
Valdes wants to play for a top club and is willing to fight David De Gea in the race to be Louis van Gaal’s first choice goalkeeper an as our regulars note, we cannot see him managing to replace De Gea as the number one at the club considering his form of late!
Another point that our regulars raise is that Louis van Gaal is considering a Red Devils fire sale in order to free up funds for January and by offering Valdes a contract, they can now sell current second choice Anders Lindegaard and add to their kitty.
Manchester United fans. Do you want United to hand a deal to Valdes? If he were signed, does he stand any chance of usurping David De Gea as number one? Let us know your thoughts below.
