Victor Valdes has dropped the clearest hint yet that he has sealed a move to Manchester United by following their official Twitter account.
The goalkeeper has been training with the Red Devils in recent months as he bids to return to full fitness from the knee injury which kept him out of the World Cup in Brazil over the summer.
The move by Manchester United will of course raise some concerns amongst the Old Trafford faithful over the future of number one David de Gea, who only has around 18 months left on his contract and is yet to come close to agreeing a new deal.

"It’s the moment to think about Manchester as we are not in a good moment," he said when asked about his future at Manchester United back in November. I’m happy there and feel very loved by the fans. I’m focused on doing well.”
If that move were to happen then Anders Lindegaard would remain as number two at Manchester United, although he has also expressed doubts over his future at Old Trafford because of his lack of first team action.
Valdes has also been linked with a move to Liverpool in the past.
