Victor Valdes to train with Manchester United

Published Add your comment

Former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes is set to train with Manchester United as he steps up his rehabilitation from injury.

The 32-year-old damaged a cruciate ligament in March in the Catalan's match against Celta Vigo, and ultimately missed out on a place in Spain's World Cup squad. The Spaniard had already announced before the injury that he'd be leaving Barcelona this summer, and it was thought he'd be signing on for French giants AS Monaco. However, after injury struck the French club quickly pulled out.

It is now understood that the remainder of his rehabilitation will be done with United following an offer from the Premier League side. A United statement read: "Valdes will have his recovery supervised by the United medical staff before training with the first team, as he bids to regain full fitness."

However United fans shouldn't get their hopes up just yet - There was no confirmation from the club as to whether Valdes was simply there to train, or whether Louis Van Gaal would be offering him a contract.
