Former Barcelona goal keeper Victor Valdes has been spotted in Manchester United training complex, training with other United players. Check the picture above.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claims the former Barcelona goal-keeper could sign for the Red Devils once he recovers completely from the knee injury.

Valdes is working under Frans Hoek, goalkeeping coach working with Louis Van Gaal and there are suggestions that the Spaniard could become the next Manchester United player in January.

Last month, Manchester United goal keeper David de Gea dropped a big hint during an interview with AS TV where he said Victor Valdes had already been signed by the club.

“Yes, my contract runs out in 2016. But they didn’t sign him for that”, he told AS TV as relayed by ESPN.

“Victor had a difficult injury, he had a bad time and the boss knows him well and has given him the opportunity to recover there.

“Yes, Victor is training over in Manchester — he’s still not 100 percent after his injury. When he is fully fit he will start to train with us. He’s still not training in goal with us. From time to time he comes out with the goalkeeping coach, but very little still.

“Van Gaal knows him well because he gave Victor his debut at Barca and has a special affection for him and, whenever possible, we have to help where we can.

However, De Gea, whose contract runs till 2016, doesn’t see Valdes as his natural successor at Manchester United.
