New rumours have surfaced claiming that Manchester City are interested in the possibility of signing Victor Valdes.
The Spanish goalkeeper played for their arch rivals Manchester United only recently before being released by the club. Valdes joined United as a replacement for David de Gea, who appeared to be on his way out at the start of last summer.
However,De Gea from the major U-turn by signing a new contract with United and this proved to be the end of Valdes at Old Trafford. He fell out with manager Louis van Gaal shortly afterwards and this led to his loan move.
Even though he has completed a successful loan spell, his United career record stands at just two games. City are going to managed by Pep Guardiola from next season and it seems that the former Barcelona manager is ready to be reunited with his former goalkeeper. Even if Valdes moves to City, he may not be the first choice option due to the presence of Joe Hart. However, the opposite could also happen since Guardiola is known to favour a goalkeeper with ball playing skills. Hart remains an excellent shot stopper but the former Bayern Munich manager may decide to place his faith on Valdes, who is excellent in this regard.
Valdes has been announced as one of the two players – alongside Nick Powell – to be released by the club at the end of the campaign. If he does play for City, it may be the biggest move between the two clubs since the days of Carlos Tevez. The Argentine striker was the last player to switch allegiance from the red half of Manchester to the blue half. He was greeted with a lot of support by City fans, who could give the same response to Victor Valdes.
