Barcelona look to Premier League for Victor Valdes replacement

Published 1 Comments

Barcelona are considering moves for Chelsea's Petr Cech and Manchester United's David De Gea, as they look to replace Victor Valdes at Camp Nou next season, reports the Sunday Mirror.

The Spanish goalkeeper is set to leave the Catalan club upon the expiry of his contract in June 2014, and the Premier League is being turned to as Gerardo Martino searches for a worthy successor.

Chelsea goalkeeper Cech remains top of Barcelona's list of transfer priorities, but there are still doubts over whether he would be willing to leave Stamford Bridge, following the recent return of Jose Mourinho as manager.

De Gea has also been mooted as a potential target, but the Primera Division side know that they'll need to offer at least £30million before Manchester United even consider letting the 22-year-old stopper leave Old Trafford.

David Moyes is unlikely to allow his current number one to move until he has found a worthy successor, as the former Atletico Madrid custodian continues to improve with every game.

The Blues do have Thibaut Courtois - who is enjoying a third loan spell at the Vicente Calderon - in reserve, meaning Cech's departure for Barcelona will be slightly more likely than De Gea's.
