David de Gea sends message to Victor Valdes on Twitter

Published 1 Comments

Victor Valdes may well have endured a torrid stint at Manchester United but he has certainly made a friend in David de Gea.

The former Barcelona star finally looks set to leave his Old Trafford nightmare behind in favour of a move to Standard Liege. 

It appears that the experienced shot-stopper will sign a six-month loan deal with the club after a falling out with Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal.

It has well and truly documented that Valdes has been completely shut out in Manchester - he hasn't even been training at the same time as his teammates.  

But all is not lost for Valdes, who will now be determined to get his career back on track. One thing is for sure, he will certainly appreciate De Gea's message of support towards him.

The United No.1 wished Valdes good luck for the future, declaring 'we learn a lot from the best'. 


De Gea tweeted: "We learn a lot from the best! Good luck my friend in this new stage! @1victorvaldes."

Fortunate to have De Gea

Ultimately, Louis van Gaal has been very lucky. If De Gea had departed for Real Madrid this past summer, then perhaps the Manchester United faithful would have got on his back regarding the Valdes situation. 


Sergio Romero is a more than capable number two goalkeeper but he's not at the required level to play week in, week out for United. Valdes, on the other hand, probably is. The ex-Barcelona man has a great deal of experience at the top level and could have played an important role for United.
