Former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes is back training with Manchester United after initially leaving the club at the end of October.
His former boss Louis van Gaal brought Valdes to the club to train with the first team with a view to earning himself a contract after recovering from a serious injury picked up in what would be his final Barcelona match last season.
Valdes stopped training with the club last month but news broke earlier this week that the 32-year-old was back at the AON Training Complex and still had a chance of earning himself a deal once he proved his fitness.
The three-times Champions League winner would be valuable back-up to David De Gea and would prove an able deputy should the no.1 pick up an injury.

Current back-up Anders Lindegaard was at times preferred by Sir Alex Ferguson as De Gea struggled to settle in England but the Danish international is yet to make an appearance under van Gaal and could even leave the club as early as Jnauary.
If so, the club would surely try to accelerate any deal for Valdes but rumours have also linked highly-rated Norwegian goalkeeper Orjan Nyland with a move to Old Trafford with Lindegaard moving in the opposite direction.
