Former Barcelona goalkeeper, Victor Valdes, has been at Carrington today as an agreement has been made for him to train at United whilst he recovers from knee ligament damage.

The 32-year-old is out of contract with Barcelona and was set to join Monaco, although the proposed deal fell through because of his injury.

He hasn’t played for six months but has now recovered and needs to work on his fitness.

Valdes’ representatives were at the club today and there are suggestions that United are prepared to offer him a contract.

He had been set to join Liverpool earlier this week but turned them down after they requested he took place in a four-day trial.

The deal would just see Valdes as back up for David de Gea, who today rejected rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid, the rivals of his boyhood club Atletico Madrid.
