Manchester City have been forced to end their pursuit of Barcelona star Victor Valdes after the goalkeeper suffered a knee injury in the Catalans' clash with Celta Vigo last night, reports The Metro.

The Spanish goalkeeper, who now looks set to miss this summer's World Cup, tore his cruciate knee ligaments and will be out of action for up to six months. 

If reports are to be believed, the Citizens were ready to snap up the 32-year-old 'keeper on a free transfer at the end of the season. 

However, Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini will now have to look elsewhere as he looks to improve his options between the sticks. 

It now appears that Valdes will move to France when he recovers from his injury setback - with Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain two possible options

Manchester City will now turn their attentions to the Premier League title race, as they take on fellow contenders Arsenal at the Emirates this weekend. 

Pellegrini's side will be desperate to secure all three points in north London on Saturday, as they target their fourth consecutive win in all competitions.
