Victor Valdes to Besiktas to be done within 24 hours

Published 7 Comments

The future of Manchester United ace Victor Valdes looks set to be tied up within the next 24 hours, with sources now claiming that he has all but signed on the dotted line for Bestikas.

Reports earlier this week told how the Turkish giants were interested in capturing Valdes, with the Spaniard having been frozen out by Louis van Gaal after seemingly having refused to turn out for United’s U21 side last season.

Departure looming

The latest on the situation, coming courtesy of Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, is that Valdes is to travel to Turkey today to bring closure to the situation, with his departure from United now a foregone conclusion.

It marks the end to a short and relatively fruitless spell in England for the 33-year-old, who won all there was to win in Spain with Barcelona.

Fans may well be left disappointed at how little they got to see him in action, though Van Gaal appears indifferent towards his looming exit.

Goalkeeping options

That’s despite the fact David de Gea could well leave in the coming days also. The general consensus is that the former Atletico Madrid man is to return to Spain to play for Real Madrid, though it remains to be seen if the latter and United can reach an agreement before September 1.

In any case Van Gaal’s number one moving forward looks destined to be Sergio Romero. The Argentina international might not be as experienced or proven as fans would like, but he hasn’t looked out of place during the early stages of this season.

United fans, will you be gutted if you lose both Valdes and De Gea? Let us know your thoughts in the comments box below.
